Districts are increasingly being asked to consider transgendered students’ academic and emotional needs, according to a New Yorker article published earlier this year (About A Boy).
LAUSD has already begun to address the needs of transgendered students with its own student participation policy, and now there’s a proposed state law (AB 1266) that would call on every district in the state to take some similar steps.
According to this LA Weekly story (Born as a Boy, Play School Sports as a Girl?), the law being proposed by California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano requires districts to allow to play sports or do other student activities has been approved by the state Senate Education Committee.
