Hampton School Board approves new policy protecting transgender, nonconforming students

HAMPTON — A new policy protecting transgender and gender nonconforming students was approved by the Hampton School Board last week.

The board voted unanimously to adopt the policy during their Sept. 13 meeting, Seacoastonline reported.

The policy provides a definition of transgender and established how and when the school will identify a student as being transgender. The goal is to create a safe and free from discrimination learning environment for the students.

The policy does not specifically address use of bathrooms by students.
