Dignity for Transgender Youth in Buffalo Public Schools

This petition made change with 794 supporters!

This petition has been created in support of the Buffalo Public Schools proposed policy on Student Gender Identity , which includes acceptance of transgender youth with dignity in our Buffalo Public Schools. The BPTO has endorsed the policy with the following recommended amendments:  

  1. Remove the word consistently to describe a student’s gender identity asserted at school.
  2. Add a central office staff, office, and/or department which will oversee the policy to ensure proper implementation in each school. 

Please add your name to urge the Buffalo Board of Education to approve a policy which assures dignity for our transgender youth in Buffalo Public Schools.

"All students need a safe and supportive educational environment to progress academically and developmentally. The District is committed to fostering a safe learning environment for all students, free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, gender nonconformity, and gender expression. In accordance with applicable law, regulations, and guidelines, the District will ensure that students have equal access to all school programs, facilities, and activities. The District will assess and address the specific needs of each student on a case-by-case basis."
