TAVARES FLORIDA Lake County School Board members are expected to take preliminary action tonight on whether or not to pursue a controversial ban on extracurricular clubs in middle schools after a student's effort to establish a Gay-Straight Alliance club.
The vote comes as a 14-year-old Bayli Silberstein heads the effort to establish the gay-straight club at Carver Middle School in Leesburg as a means of combating bullying. Bayli applied to start the club in November but never heard from school leaders about her request.
The American Civil Liberties Union then backed Bayli, saying the school district has a legal obligation to allow the club to meet. Bayli tonight plans to deliver a petition with 50,000 signatures of supporters from across the country, according to the ACLU.

The ACLU flew a plane over the school towing a banner reading: "Stand With Bayli, Not The Bullies."
The first vote passed 3-2 in favor of allowing the clubs
Another vote has to pass in the next board meeting
