GLSEN Trans Model Policy 2016_0

This document presents our Model
District Policy on Transgender and Gender
Nonconforming Students, which outlines
best practices for schools to ensure
that all students are safe, included and
respected in school, regardless of their
gender identity or expression — including
transgender and gender nonconforming
students. The model presents some policy
objectives, key points and alternatives
to consider. It is meant to be adaptable
to the specific needs of your school
district, while keeping the original intent
of the policy intact. Depending on your
school district, the policy language
provided here may fit best in a district
policy, an administrative regulation, or
a combination of the two. Our model
was developed by examining school
district policies from various states,
guidance provided by states and the
federal government, and identifying best
practices for a national context.
