School board members of the Rocklin Unified School District will decide whether to change its policy of notifying parents if their student wants to change how they’re identified.The Wednesday meeting, which started around 6:30 p.m., drew hundreds either in support or against that policy change. If approved, the teachers and staff would be required to notify parents if their child wants to be identified as a gender other than the biological sex. They would be required to notify parents within three school days.Parents against the policy worry the change would “out” children who are not ready to share their identity. Those in support feel not having access to that info would be considered withholding information.As of 11:35 p.m., no vote was made.If passed, parents and guardians are to be notified within three school days when their child requests the following:To be identified as a gender other than the child’s biological sex or genderTo use a name that differs from their legal name (other than a commonly recognized nickname)To use pronouns that do not align with the child’s biological sex or genderAccess to sex-segregated school programs and activities, or bathrooms or changing facilities that do not align with the child’s biological sex or gender Notification can be delayed up to 48 hours to fulfill mandated reporter requirements if a staff member, in conjunction with the site administrator, has credible evidence that notification could result in “substantial jeopardy” to the child’s safety.Earlier Wednesday, a judge ordered a temporary stop on a similar policy in the Chino Valley Unified School District in Southern California.

School board members of the Rocklin Unified School District will decide whether to change its policy of notifying parents if their student wants to change how they’re identified.

The Wednesday meeting, which started around 6:30 p.m., drew hundreds either in support or against that policy change. If approved, the teachers and staff would be required to notify parents if their child wants to be identified as a gender other than the biological sex. They would be required to notify parents within three school days.

Parents against the policy worry the change would “out” children who are not ready to share their identity. Those in support feel not having access to that info would be considered withholding information.

As of 11:35 p.m., no vote was made.

If passed, parents and guardians are to be notified within three school days when their child requests the following:

  • To be identified as a gender other than the child’s biological sex or gender
  • To use a name that differs from their legal name (other than a commonly recognized nickname)
  • To use pronouns that do not align with the child’s biological sex or gender
  • Access to sex-segregated school programs and activities, or bathrooms or changing facilities that do not align with the child’s biological sex or gender

Notification can be delayed up to 48 hours to fulfill mandated reporter requirements if a staff member, in conjunction with the site administrator, has credible evidence that notification could result in “substantial jeopardy” to the child’s safety.

Earlier Wednesday, a judge ordered a temporary stop on a similar policy in the Chino Valley Unified School District in Southern California.
