The approved guidelines urge schools to adopt the following policies:
—carefully consider on a case by case basis whether to inform parents that their child is transgender if that child hasn’t come out to the parents.
—make “reasonable and good faith” efforts to address transgender students by their chosen names and the corresponding pronoun when asked by the student or parents.
—give transgender students access to bathrooms, locker rooms and changing facilities in accordance with each student’s gender identity. Any student, regardless of the reason, should have access to a unisex or single-user bathroom. A student who wants more privacy could request an adjusted changing scheduled or the use of a private area such as a nurse’s office or gym teacher’s office.
—let transgender students participate in physical education classes and intramural sports in accordance with their gender identity. The same rule “generally” should apply to interscholastic sports, but eligibility is determined by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.
