Another School District Adopts Trans ‘Outing’ Policy
The Rocklin Unified School District approved a policy Wednesday requiring that parents be notified if their child starts identifying as another gender. The policy was adopted on the same day that a San Bernardino County judge halted an identical policy in Chino.
Rocklin Unified is one of several school districts to embrace the controversial trans “outing” policy. Chino Valley Unified was the first, followed by school districts in Murietta and Temecula. Orange Unified will decide whether to adopt the policy at its meeting tonight.
Rocklin trustees voted in favor of the new requirement 4-1. Michelle Sutherland cast the lone “no” vote.
