A major school district in Colorado encompassing a large portion of the Denver suburbs has told its teachers that they should hide from parents if a student is persistently exhibiting gender dysphoria.
If the student is in elementary school, teachers should consult parents. But not if the student is older, according to a report in Daily Wire.
The report explains the Jefferson County Public School district has dispatched to teachers a “Toolkit for Supporting Transgender & Gender Expansive/Nonconforming Students” that claims that gender identity, gender expression and sex assigned at birth are all different.
There’s also a procedure for classifying people based on who they are physically and emotionally attracted to, the report said.
The Wire said it heard from one parent with concerns the school would not inform parents of such behavior at schools.
And according to the school guidance, parents whose child in secondary school who uses a different name, gender, or pronouns at school should not be contacted.
That’s the opposite of instructions for elementary students.
The Wire quoted the actual instructions delivered: “If school staff believe that a gender identity or expression issue is presenting itself and creating difficulty for the child at school, approaching parents/guardians about the issue is appropriate at the elementary level. Together the family and school can then identify appropriate steps to support the student.””
But for older students, that’s not the plan.
“In some cases, notifying parents/guardians carries risks for the student, such as being kicked out of the home. Prior to notification of any parent/guardian or guardian regarding the transition process, school staff should work closely with the student to assess the degree, if any, the parent/guardian will be involved in the process and must consider the health, well-being, and safety of the student in transition.”
On a tangent, the guide insists “asking girls to wear dresses and men to wear ties during a choir concert exacerbated unnecessary gender differences,” the report said.
It pushes the partisan LGBT agenda, with instructions to “reduce or eliminate the practice of segregating students by gender. In situations where students are segregated by gender, such as for health education classes, students should be included in the group that corresponds to their gender identity. In the case of a school activity like say, Girls Chorus, the school should consider regrouping/naming the groups according to voice part (Sopranos & Altos, Tenors & Basses), rather than gender. This may also affect something like the choir dress code and how we might create a more inclusive space for multiple gender expressions.”
It also specifies that boys who “identify” as girls should use the restroom and shower facilities for girls, and those boys will be allowed to share “overnight accommodations” with others, including girls, who say they are girls.
In fact, the concept of transgender ideology has taken several blows recently. Texas officials confirmed that transgender surgeries on children are, in fact, child abuse. And being male or female is unchangeable in a human, as that is embedded down to the DNA level.
