Training Overview

How can you support your transgender students? Learn the specific steps to take this school year.

Nearly 40% of transgender children who are not supported attempt suicide. Support pushes that number down to 3%, on par with the national average. Transgender students are in your school now, whether you know it or not. How teachers and staff treat them contributes to how they feel about themselves, especially if they lack understanding at home.

The Department of Education published guidelines to support transgender youth under Title IX in June. Although a federal judge temporarily blocked the regulations, they remain sound practices to help your students feel comfortable at school. You can take specific steps now to provide the backing they need.
