From Think Progress - New York City Schools Implement Transgender Inclusion Guidelines

Some good news from New York City. Seems they have put into place some guidelines to help teachers and other school facility in how to handle the issues that come up in regards to transgender students. These include names, privacy, sports, and gender specific activities.

If your school system does not currently have something like this in place you can help out by contacting them and urging them to draft similar guidelines. I posted a while ago about the GLSEN Safe Space Kit which is designed to help facilitate just this type of inclusive atmosphere.
