At this time the Board plans to follow the advice of the Minnesota School Board Association (MSBA) on creating another policy at this time. MSBA has recommended that creating a separate model policy dealing with bathrooms and locker room protections for transgender students, without clear legal decisions from the courts, State Legislature or US Congress is premature.
Our long standing practice has been to work with the individual student and/or parent request on a case by case basis to ensure privacy for all students.
We will remain committed to providing a safe and respectful learning environment and to providing an education that respects all students and families.
Chair, Anoka-Hennepin School Board
