Student Disclosure of Identity

It is the district’s goal to provide a safe and supportive educational environment in which all students may learn.  As part of creating that safe educational environment, no district employee will provide false or misleading information to the parent of a student regarding that student’s gender identity or intention to transition to a gender that is different from the gender on their birth certificate or certificate issued upon adoption.   

If a student makes a request to a licensed employee to accommodate a gender identity, name, or pronoun that is different than what was assigned to the student in the student’s registration forms or records, Iowa law requires the licensed employee to report the request to an administrator. Iowa law requires the administrator receiving the report to report the request to the student’s parent.  This requirement also applies to all nicknames.

To maintain compliance with Iowa law and also provide efficiency in the reporting requirements listed above, the district will provide parents the opportunity to list any and all nicknames used by the student in the student’s registration paperwork.
