CA Safe Schools Coalition Model Policy

CA Safe Schools Coalition Model Policy

This policy sets out guidelines for schools and district staff to address the needs of
transgender and gender nonconforming students and clarifies how state law should be
implemented in situations where questions may arise about how to protect the legal rights or
safety of such students. This policy does not anticipate every situation that might occur with
respect to transgender or gender nonconforming students, and the needs of each
transgender or gender nonconforming student must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. In
all cases, the goal is to ensure the safety, comfort, and healthy development of the
transgender or gender nonconforming student while maximizing the student’s social
integration and minimizing stigmatization of the student.
