Transgender Youth School Guidelines from TransActive Education & Advocacy
TransActive Education & Advocacy, a leader in education on trans children & youth issues has released their "How-To Guide for Oregon Public & Charter Schools". It contains valuable information for how schools everywhere can support trans kids.
The guide can be viewed and downloaded from http://www.TransActiveOnline.org
Written specifically for Oregon schools (but useful for schools everywhere), the guide provides information on how K-12 schools can implement policies and procedures that will not only insure their compliance with the recently enacted Oregon Safe Schools Act, but that will provide a safer, more supportive, inclusive and respectful school environment for all students who identify as transgender or who may simply express their gender identity in non-conforming ways.
At a time when the Middleton, Connecticut Board of Education has enacted policies that discriminate against and exclude transgender children & youth from participating in athletic activities, this guide will help school districts and administrators implement proactive policies that provide all students with a healthy learning environment and access to extra-curricular activities.
TransActive staff are available to provide more education & training regarding transgender and gender non-conforming identity in children and youth. For more information on scheduling a workshop, please send an email to:
TransActive provides necessary support to improve the quality of life of transgender and gender non-conforming children, youth and their families through education, advocacy, support and research.
