Transgender Information for Grass Lake Community Schools Families
As is occurring across the nation in schools and in the work place, gender identity equality discussions have become a growing topic for school families and administrators. Protecting the rights of all individuals in our schools is of paramount concern to all of us.

Students who are identifying themselves as transgender are protected under federal law to occupy gender-separated facilities in public school buildings according to their personal gender identity. Recently the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling that discrimination based on gender identity, or non-conformity, is prohibited. While this ruling is being reviewed by the United States Supreme Court, schools are required to treat each student as they are gender-identifying themselves, while we refer to them by their identifying pronouns and proper names, allowing them to wear clothing that corresponds to their gender identity, and allowing them to use restroom facilities and other gender-separated areas, regardless of their assigned sex at birth.
 
Grass Lake Community Schools is committed to providing a safe, educational environment for all of our students to the extent that the laws allow us, while at the same time protecting the privacy of our students.
