Mark your calendars! Clark County's sex/gender diverse students need your support!
"Trustees may decide at the meeting whether to direct the superintendent to draft a new policy and regulation for [sex/]gender-diverse students. Speakers from the public will have one minute for their comments.
The meeting will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Clark County Commission Chambers in the Government Center.
The public can call the School Board office at 702-799-0257 to sign up to speak from 3 p.m. on March 16 through noon on March 22. They can also indicate they are interested in speaking once they arrive at the meeting.
State law requires the Department of Education to prescribe a policy for all school districts that addresses the rights of [sex/]gender-diverse people. A proposed regulation, which the state Board of Education is expected to discuss on March 30, requires schools to address the rights of [sex/]gender-diverse students on an individualized basis.
It also requires schools to adopt a policy that ensures students and employees use the names and pronouns recorded by a parent or guardian of a student in registration papers."
