Description:  *Question 1.

Executive Order (EO) 2019-11, titled "Strengthening Our Commitment to Affirming and Inclusive Schools" established the Affirming and Inclusive Schools Task Force (Task Force) to identify strategies and best practices for ensuring welcoming, safe, supportive, and inclusive school environments for transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming students. The Task Force delivered a report that served as the basis for two non-regulatory guidance documents entitled Supporting Transgender, Nonbinary and Gender Nonconforming Students and Sample District Policy and Administrative Procedures at www.isbe.net/supportallstudents. The Ill. State Board of Education (ISBE) hosts these documents on its website.

Does the Board want to incorporate ISBE’s Sample District Policy and Administrative Procedures policy recommendation into this policy?

 No (default)

This will include, but not be limited to, use of restrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities that correspond with the student’s gender identity." In addition, the list of protected classifications in policy 7:20 will be amended to replace "gender identity" with "gender; gender identity (whether or not traditionally associated with the student’s sex assigned at birth);")
