It includes guidelines on sports participation for transgender and gender nonconforming students and how schools should approach bathroom and locker room requests such as accommodating requests to use a single unisex bathroom like the nurse’s restroom. 

The policy states, “there is no affirmative duty for any school district staff member to notify a student’s parent of the student’s gender identity or expression.”
