In a video of a June meeting titled “Supporting Transgender Students in School,” Bob Mosier, the district’s chief communications officer, told teachers and administrators how to handle transgender issues at overnight school-related events:
Many of you might be asking yourselves, “So I’m at an overnight field trip, and I have student who’s biologically a male, identifies as a female and we’ve worked with that student and her family, and that student wants to sleep in the dorms, or whatever sleeping arrangements are, with the females. They don’t want to sleep in a room by themselves; they want to sleep with the rest of the females. So what do we do?”
And the answer is, they sleep with the females. That’s not the easy answer; it’s the right answer. And in some cases, it’s going to cause issues, because … the private information piece doesn’t allow you to share that with parents of all of the other campers. Right? So that’s difficult.
Another school official had just explained how such issues relating to a student’s personal information, including identity, are “private” and not to be discussed with other parents.
