It goes without saying that students learn best when they feel safe. Yet many transgender or other gender-expansive students in California attend schools unprepared to ensure they’re fully accepted and supported. How can we create safe and supportive campuses for students regardless of their gender identity or expression? Despite new legislation, schools frequently do not have the necessary experience or tools for proactively establishing a school climate that respects the gender of ALL students. This workshop will highlight specific approaches that leaders can intentionally employ to develop a gender-inclusive school climate. Utilizing a multi-dimensional framework, the session will include structural and instructional methods for developing such a campus. Recognizing that schools already have much on their plates, the model employs a developmental approach for integrating these practices in a more holistic manner. The result will be a session focused on realistic and practical ways for establishing truly gender inclusive schools.
