Stay Current: Legal and Policy Issues Pertaining to LGBTQ+ Students and School Staff
December 16, 2020 (8:00 am - 9:30 am)
Link to Register

School administrators, school board members and other educators need to stay abreast of the latest federal and state laws and policies pertaining to supporting LGBTQ+ students in schools, to support students and families and avoid lawsuits. This can be a challenging task, especially given the changing legal landscape which includes new court rulings like the June 2020 Supreme Court Bostock decision on employment discrimination against LGBTQ people. In this interactive webinar, we will review legal requirements, the State Board of Education’s statement and guidance on supporting LGBTQ+ students, as well as inclusive policies and practices. Participants will leave with strategies for advancing policies and procedures in their local district. A foundational understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression is recommended, but not required.
