Neenah School Board votes to protect their transgender students

by | Sep 1, 2020 | 0 comments

On August 18 the Neenah School Board voted in support of Policy 2260.03 on non-
discrimination guidelines for transgender and gender-nonconforming students. The policy is student-focused and includes guidance for teachers to use a student’s preferred name and pronoun upon the student’s request, develop individualized support plans that are respectful of students’ gender identity and privacy, and allowances for participation in gender-segregated activities based on students’ support plans.

The policy defers to the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletics Association in regard to policies for transgender athletes’ participation in competitive, club, or district sports.

Dedicated advocates worked for more than five years in support of the policy changes including school district leader Vicki Dohr and long-time high school Gender and Sexuality Alliance advisor Natalie Shea.
