Counselor Connect: The Legal Ins-and-Outs of Accommodating Trans* and Non-binary Students
The generation of students in K-12 schools right now, and the generation to come, understand gender differently than the adults in their lives have been socialized to understand gender and sexuality. Students who identify as trans*, non-binary, or gender expansive may have requests in schools that include everything from bathroom and locker room use, to their name and pronouns, to extracurricular activities and special education needs. What are the rights of the students? What are the rights of the teachers or parents who may disagree with a student's transition? Should each school have a policy or procedure in place? What does the future look like for transgender students in schools? In this session, presenter Jessica Heiser wears two hats: (1) the experienced attorney who will discuss the complex legal obligations of schools under ever-shifting federal and state laws, and (2) the certified change practitioner who will empower you to think larger than avoiding getting sued and more about how to create inclusive learning environments for all.
