Escambia School District adds transgender students to non-discrimination policies
The Escambia County School Board is adding transgender students to their non-discrimination policies.
The district's Student Rights and Responsibilities handbook already bans discrimination.
Last night, the board voted to specifically include gender identity and expression in the discrimination clause.
Earlier this year, the US Department of Education and the Department of Justice laid out guidelines to help reduce civil complaints made by transgender students, against school districts.
