This policy goes against parent's right and alienates non-trans gender children. Parents must be notified if their own children have requested to referred to as something other than their natural gender. That child needs help and the parent, not the school should choose how to help them.
Additionally, our children should not be subject to changing clothes or using restroom facilities around those of the opposite gender. This is opening a door to sexual assault that you cannot easily close.
Please think of the 99.5% of children and not the tiny percentage of transgenders. Thank you.
