California Law Stops Schools from Outing Trans Students

several districts in conservative-leaning areas of the state.Under those policies, school personnel were required to inform on transgender and nonbinary students to their parents if a student either “came out” to a teacher or administrator or asked for various accommodations based on their transgender or nonbinary identity.Proponents of the policies argued that it was important to keep parents informed about decisions made regarding their children and that not having parental notification policies in place would make school districts more vulnerable to lawsuits.But LGBTQ advocates argued that outing students against their will, or before they’re comfortable coming out more publicly, might heighten their feelings of isolation, depression, or suicidal ideation.

The Riley Roundup: Transgender Educational Warfare, Part 1
Sacramento Bee, San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Tom Garza issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Chino Valley Unified School District from enforcing the policy, which is one of six school districts in the state to have adopted policies requiring parental notification when a student doesn’t conform to gender norms or stereotypes.The Chino Valley policy was challenged by Attorney General Rob Bonta, who argued that the policy violates the privacy rights of LGBTQ students, and endangers the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of transgender and gender-nonconforming students.The Orange Unified School District was the most recent to adopt a policy similar to Chino Valley’s — coming after Bonta’s lawsuit was filed — with school boards in Murietta, Temecula, the Anderson Union High School District in Shasta County, in the northern part of the state, and the Rocklin School District, northeast of Sacramento.The policies are increasingly being adopted in conservative enclaves throughout the state as part of a larger societal backlash against transgender visibility — which has been encouraged by conservative influencers and Republican Party leaders.A group of activists recently filed a ballot initiative — one of three targeting transgender youth visibility — that would impose similar parental notification policies on districts throughout the state.The Alaska State Board of Education recently approved a proposed regulation barring transgender girls from competing on female-designated high school sports teams for any districts that are part of the Alaska School Activities Association.
