A very large crowd formed inside and outside of the Edward A. Greer Education Center for a regular meeting of the Clark County School District Board of Trustees. Many attended to show their support for discussions and policies in regards to gender diverse students which was scheduled as Agenda Item 4.02.  

When it was time to discuss scheduled agenda item 4.02, Clark County School District Board of Trustees President, Deanna L. Wright stated, "Per our attorney, I need to take a recess for this meeting. Trustees, I need you all in the back room please."

After a 19 minute meeting, Deanna returned stating, "Thank you, everyone, for letting us consult with our attorneys. After hearing from Mary Anne Miller who is our attorney for the district attorneys office and our attorney for the school district", "We will be pulling agenda item 4.02 tonight."

The announcement was followed by many gender diverse policy supporters vocalizing their disappointment. Deanna continued, "We will have another meeting at a larger venue at another date and time."

Attorney Mary Anne Miller was overheard saying, “There’s just too many people outside.”
