In a narrow 4-1 vote, Lake County School Board members gave an preliminary OK to a rule that makes it even more unclear whether a controversial gay-straight club will be recognized as a campus club in the fall. The new rule comes in the wake of 14-year-old Bayli Silberstein's effort since November to establish a Gay-Straight Alliance student club at Carver Middle School in Leesburg. The club has been temporarily allowed to meet until the end of school June 7 as part of a consent agreement after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the board, superintendent and school principal on Bayli's behalf.
