Early this school year, the Board of Education authorized the establishment of an ad-hoc committee to draft a policy regarding transgender students and staff. This committee was made up of Verona Area School District (VASD) staff, parents, students, community members, along with Board and administrative representatives. The policy is in draft form and will likely receive a first reading by the Board this summer with an anticipated adoption prior to the beginning of the 2016 - 2017 school year.

On Monday, June 6th, the Board and Administration held a presentation by an attorney from von Breissen and Roper covering items such as:
* A review of current law regarding transgender employees
* A review of current law regarding transgender students
* Considerations for policy development regarding transgender students and staff

This is a sensitive matter that has received a lot of attention and media exposure very recently with directives to school districts from the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education. This presentation provided the Board and community with important information as the Board works toward implementing a policy.
