*Protecting Transgender Students
Below is a joint statement from BUSD School Board President Ty Alper and 
BUSD Superintendent Dr. Donald Evans:

Last week the President issued an order rescinding federal protections 
for transgender students in our nation’s public schools. Our community 
should know that this order will have no impact in the Berkeley Unified 
School District (BUSD). We are committed to protecting all students, 
including transgender students, from discrimination, bullying, and 
harassment. In 2013, our School Board passed one of the first policies 
in the state to protect transgender students. Moreover, transgender 
students in California have the right under state law to use restrooms 
and locker rooms that align with their gender identity. State law also 
expressly prohibits discrimination in schools on the basis of gender 

We will protect and provide equal rights to our transgender students 
whether federal law requires us to or not. We are deeply concerned about 
the students in other states who may not be protected, but the federal 
order will have no effect in the Berkeley public schools.

Here at Berkeley High School, we have identified several locations for 
non-gendered bathrooms and area awaiting installation of proper signage. 
We will update everyone as soon as these bathrooms are available to
