*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
