Boulder Valley School District (USA)

The Boulder Valley School District is facing a civil rights complaint from a parent who says her children didn’t have a good experience at Boulder’s Creekside Elementary because the school wasn’t prepared to support children on gender identity issues. The parent, Kate McKenzie, recently filed a complaint with the federal Office of Civil Rights, alleging that the district “is not adequately protecting the rights and integrity of its gender fluid and transgender children.”

Her main concerns are that transgender children are not consistently allowed to share their culture and experiences, the district is not adequately preparing staff members and the district is not “adequately evaluating the gender-stereotyped messages” sent to students.

The Office of Civil Rights hasn’t yet decided if it will accept the complaint for an investigation.
