Gender Inclusion Policy


In August the BCSD Board of Trustees passed a Gender Inclusion Policy.   All students need a safe, supportive school environment to progress academically and developmentally. The purpose of this policy is to foster an educational environment in the BCSD that is safe, supportive, and fully inclusive for all students, regardless of gender identify or gender expression as well as to facilitate compliance with applicable and governmental guidelines.Now, the district is tasked with implementing the policy through procedures.  
Superintendent Dr. GwenCarol Holmes and Assistant Superintendent John Blackman met with all coaches, toured all schools, and spoke to various staff who are charged with implementing the policy. Procedures are in the process of being developed and next steps are being identified.  Please stay tuned for more information.  If you have questions, please ask your school principal or contact Assistant Superintendent John Blackman.
