Subject: [External] – Questions on Policy JBD
WARNING: This email originated outside of the Las Cruces Public Schools organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe.
I have a few questions on policy JBD so I can better understand its implications on my student.
III. When a student discloses their gender identity, are parents informed or students asked if their parents are aware ?
III A. 3. How many times can a student change gender identity and is the school required to accommodate each change ?
III A. 4. Are students required to use the preferred pronoun of a fellow student? The par. states “students to be addressed”….
How is the “preferred pronoun” going to be disclosed to the student body and by who ?
Will students be allowed to use the name of the transgender student in lieu of pronouns?
What is the penalty if a student refuses to “address a transgender student” by their preferred pronoun ?
How much class time are cisgender/straight students spending to learn about “gender identity” and the “use of preferred pronouns” ?
How are the teaching of pronouns being handled in Spanish ?
What is “assigned” sex and who assigns ? My understanding is gender is determined immediately after fertilization (chromosomes). Pls correct me if I am wrong.
III B. 2. If a female is using the rest room and a transgender (male) student identifying as a female enters at the same time, what are the female student’s options/rights ? Can she real time request her privacy be honored ?
III C 2. I read this sentence to mean a biological male transgender student can compete against biological females. Correct ?
III F 1. How much (hours/days) training time are educators, staff and administrators required “to create a safe and “professional development” …..” ? Where does this time come from in a teachers schedule so as not to impact actual educational/academic time ?
