KUSD Approves Transgender Non-Discrimination Policy
November 24, 2020 6:33AM CST
KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha Unified has approved a non-discrimination policy covering students that are transgender and gender non-conforming.
The KUSD Board approved the measure unanimously which allows a parent, guardian, or a student over 18 to register with the name and pronouns they prefer and not what necessarily matches their birth certificate.
The district did not take up a measure that would have allowed students under 18 to determine the names and pronouns used at school.
A similar measure in Dane County is being challenged in court.
KUSD may take that change under advisement as well as one that governs overnight sleeping arrangements on school trips.
