Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham released the following statement today on the importance of inclusive schools for all students.

"We have incredible trans students, staff and families throughout our district. We will always support and be proud of our trans communities. We are also dedicated to creating inclusive and welcoming learning communities and we take seriously our responsibility to provide safe and nondiscriminatory environments for all students, including students of all gender identities. This includes our practice of allowing students to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. We will not waiver in our commitment to this and all other inclusive practices in our schools."
