California School District Requires Staff to Inform Parents if Their Children Identify As A Different Gender

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

Early Thursday morning, by a vote of 4-1, the Rocklin Unified School District board of trustees in California adopted a policy requiring staff to inform parents if their children start to identify as any gender other than their biological sex. Rocklin is the fifth school district in California to require the parents to be notified since July. The policy states that the schools in the districts must contact the parents within three days if their child requests to use a name, pronouns, or sex-segregated facilities “that do not align with the child’s biological sex.”  Trustees clarified that a student’s gender identity will remain confidential to everyone “except the student and their parent(s).”
