Transgender Policies at Our Jersey Shore Schools

Future after school?

It is a “hot button”  issue, transgender policies at our schools. In a recent letter from the White House … the issue is addressed and some definitions are laid out. Here are some of the quotes from the document ….

 

  • Gender identity refers to an individual’s internal sense of gender. A person’s gender identity may be different from or the same as the person’s sex assigned at birth.
  •  Sex assigned at birth refers to the sex designation recorded on an infant’s birth certificate should such a record be provided at birth.
  • Transgender describes those individuals whose gender identity is different from the sex they were assigned at birth. A transgender male is someone who identifies as male but was assigned the sex of female at birth; a transgender female is someone who identifies as female but was assigned the sex of male at birth.
  • Gender transition refers to the process in which transgender individuals begin asserting the sex that corresponds to their gender identity instead of the sex they were assigned at birth. During gender transition, individuals begin to live and identify as the sex consistent with their gender identity and may dress differently, adopt a new name, and use pronouns consistent with their gender identity. Transgender individuals may undergo gender transition at any stage of their lives, and gender transition can happen swiftly or over a long duration of time.

Here in the Garden State some districts have adopted “transgendered” policies (Including Jackson Township) while others are waiting and looking at options …. including Manchester, Brick and Toms River …

 

We realized there was so much going on at the state and federal level that it was better to wait for further guidance ~ Toms River Regional Superintendent David Healy

 

Issues like using locker rooms and bathrooms are key issues in this situation …..

 

Where do you stand ? Who should decide … the federal government, the state government or local school boards? Parents and Students … SOUND OFF …. It’s your schools!
