The Washoe County, Nevada school district has implemented a new policy that allows transgender students to use the restroom and shower facilities of the opposite sex, and prohibits school staff from discussing students’ transgender status with their parents.
Meanwhile, a draft proposal of a similar policy has surfaced in the Clark County, Nevada school district.
The Clark County draft comes on the heels of a controversy that erupted last year when district officials proposed a new sex education curriculum that was far too explicit for many parents to stomach.
To add to the uproar, district officials reportedly only consulted with a few handpicked residents before floating the proposal.
The resulting protest forced the Las Vegas-based district to cancel any plans to implement the new sex ed curriculum any time soon.
But the behind-the-scenes maneuvering is apparently ongoing. The draft document for a new policy regarding transgender students, seemingly meant to be distributed exclusively among school staff, leaked out last last year.
