Gender Support Teams
A district-wide Gender Support Team will oversee the implementation of these procedures. The Gender Support Team will have a representative School Coordinator from each school, typically a social worker. The Gender Support Team and School Coordinator can develop an individualized Gender Support Plan for students upon request.
The Gender Support Team is tasked with ensuring all District staff are aware of the procedures and understand the different aspects of the Gender Support Plan.
Teachers and staff will make their best efforts not to segregate students by gender in any of their practices or activities. If students are subjected to a gender-specific practice, students shall participate in a way that is consistent with their gender identity.
Schools must be vigilant for any mistreatment, bullying, or harassment based on gender identity for all its students, and especially transgender and gender expansive students. Schools must respond promptly to any allegations of mistreatment and must also work to prevent these issues.
