CCSD Sponsors “Gender Identity” Workshop

The latest offering from the Clark County School District’s Equity and Diversity Education Department was emailed to all employees recently.  It advertises a training by our “Director of Education and
Training for Gender Spectrum.”

The training will address the following: “A non-binary framework for understanding gender diversity will be presented as well as foundational terminology and concepts related to this complex topic. Perspectives from gender-expansive young people and their families, as well as from societies around the world will be highlighted.”

What does this professional development hope to accomplish?  “The workshop will also explore the role educators must play in providing the necessary conditions for supporting a student’s authentic gender
at school, in addition to providing some best practices for ensuring a child’s gender is honored and respected.” (emphasis added)
