The law surrounding recognition of transgender students continues to rapidly evolve. As courts clarify requirements under federal law for equal treatment of transgender students, a variety of best practices have also developed in schools to help make equal treatment a lived reality for these students. This workshop will provide important context about what it means to be transgender, the science behind the treatment of gender dysphoria, and the critical role that schools play in helping transgender students thrive. Participants will learn not just about how the courts are interpreting federal law to protect transgender students, but also how to lead in this area by adopting best practices that have succeeded in other schools and districts across the country.
