Middle and high school can present challenging times for any student. For transgender students those challenges are even more omnipresent. These situations can present significant legal, human and ethical dilemmas for the school. From restrooms to locker rooms, schools need to have policies and procedures to address the needs of transgender students.

In recent months, several state and local school systems have passed policies that permit transgender students to participate in school athletics based on their gender identity. High schools and even middle schools around the country are considering similar policy shifts and ways in which they can accommodate and work with transgender students so that all students are safe, included and respected in their schools.

In the ever-changing legal, political, legislative, and school environments, administrators, teachers, counselors and staff need a clear understanding of the laws that apply to them regarding their transgender students. They should also make sure that the internal policies and procedures are in place to foster an educational environment that serves all students.

Please join Jessica Cino, associate professor of law and associate dean for academic affairs at Georgia State University College of Law, as she discusses the necessary steps schools should take to ensure they deal with legal and practical issues, develop appropriate policies and procedures, provide a safe learning environment, handle discipline issues and limit liability for the school, its administrators and staff.
