Understanding and Exercising Your Child's Title IX Rights at School

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recent pronouncements from the federal Departments of Justice and Education have made very clear the rights of transgender and other gender-expansive students to express and identify their gender in ways that are authentic to their own experiences. Across all grades and in virtually every aspect of a student’s life, educational institutions face new challenges to ensure that every child has full access to learning. This workshop will examine evolving legislative and policy requirements that are impacting everything from student records to athletic participation. What specific protections are in place for students? What if state or local districts do not explicitly have such protections in place? Where do anti-bullying laws fit in? In addition to these topics, the workshop will also include discussions about first amendment speech and expression issues and legal implications in private school settings.
