Summary

What are the imperatives for today’s K-12 educators to protect the rights of transgender students? How can educators go beyond meeting legal obligations to create a safe and welcoming school environment for all? Panelists will share best practices for creating transgender-sensitive policies and procedures across all areas of K-12 education. A transgender student will add a personal perspective. Attendees will collaborate in small groups to develop their own plans to safeguard transgender students’ rights and foster an inclusive school community.
