blogtalklogoTransgender issues have been grabbing the headlines lately, and school districts may find the need to grapple with this sensitive subject.  Schools must follow legal guidelines and policy when dealing with this topic to preserve student and staff rights and safety while maintaining an inclusive learning environment.

On June 23 at 2 p.m., Ray Pinney, host of NJSBA’s online radio program, Conversations on New Jersey Education will discuss transgender issues in public schools with three attorneys who have dealt with these questions from different angles. The attorneys are Robyn Gigl from Stein, McGuire, Pantages & Gigl; Luanne Peterpaul, who is with Gluck Walrath; and Teresa Moore, with Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti, LLP
