Transgender and gender non-conforming students have the right to use their chosen name and preferred pronouns in schools. But what about in their student records? What should districts do when a student requests that their records be changed to reflect their gender identity? And how do districts protect a student's privacy throughout this process? This presentation provides a roadmap through these questions and provides guidance on supporting transgender and gender-nonconforming students as they navigate their changing identities in the educational environment. This presentation will help educators ensure that their school community provides a supportive environment for their transgender and gender non-conforming students; address discrimination and bullying of transgender and gender non-conforming students; and describe counseling and supportive services to meet the needs of this student population across the continuum of placement options, from general education to special education.
