Nov. 24, 2009 - PRLog -- 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 transgender children and youth.

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:

services@transactiveonline.org
