Transgender Students

  • Guidance for Educators Working with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students

    In 2008, the Colorado General Assembly passed SB08-200 which barred discrimination based on sexual orientation, including transgender status. In November 2009, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission adopted rules to implement SB08-200. Though the statute and rules set out legal requirements applicable to schools, there is little practical guidance available to schools. Given the statistical likelihood that each school district will have transgender employees or students, it is essential that school boards, school administrators, and educators understand the requirements of the law. The Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB), the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE), the Colorado Education Association (CEA), and One Colorado collaborated to create this document to provide practical guidance and resources to school districts, educators, and school communities working with and meeting the needs of transgender students.
