This Policy sets forth the District Policy for schools to address the needs and concerns of
transgender and gender expansive students to ensure safe, affirming, and healthy school
environments where every child can learn. Schools within the District must be proactive in
creating a school culture that respects and values all students and fosters understanding of
gender identity and expression within the school community. This Policy is intended to
ensure that all students are welcomed, valued, included, and respected; to help schools
ensure safe learning environments free of discrimination, harassment, and bullying; and to
promote the educational and social integration of transgender and gender expansive
students. This Policy cannot and does not anticipate every situation that may occur; every
student is different and that includes transgender and gender expansive students. The
support and accommodations for each student must be assessed and addressed individually
based on the specific requests and needs of each student.
