Resources for Passing and Implementing Transgender-Inclusive Policy and Procedures

Letter from the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and U.S. Department of Education Civil Rights Division re: Arcadia Unified School District (July 24, 2013)

Key results:

  • School agreed to treat transgender student as the gender he identified as in all aspect of school, develop comprehensive policies for the district, and train all staff.

From the Gender Spectrum website:  “Schools In Transition: A Guide for Supporting Transgender in K-12 Schools” offers practical guidance and field-tested tips to parents, educators, administrators, and community members on planning and supporting a transgender student through a transition at school. The guide is geared toward the needs of all students, kindergarten through twelfth grade, and incorporates recommendations that will allow schools to tailor those plans to the particular circumstances of the student and school.  Read and download it here.
