Abstract (Summary)

The percentage of students who identify as transgender is increasing. A greater awareness of transgender issues has been brought to the attention of school personnel. Unfortunately, transgender students are one of the most vulnerable groups in the school setting and encounter high rates of victimization due to their gender identity and expression. Research has demonstrated that transgender students receive lower grades, are absent from school more often and are isolated from their school community. Recent legislation has mandated public schools put measures in place to protect transgender students and ensure their academic success.

The purpose of this project was to create curriculum that provides hands on strategies that middle and high school personnel can utilize to create an inclusive school for transgender students. The transgender curriculum consists of a 4-week training, implemented in one-hour sessions, over a four-month period.
