Missouri school board mulls nondiscrimination policy change

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The Columbia Board of Education Policy Committee is considering adding gender identity and expression to the district’s nondiscrimination policy.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (http://bit.ly/1QHyS39 ) reports the committee discussed the possible addition on Monday. The policy currently prohibits discrimination against staff members or students based on sexual orientation.

Committee members learned Monday that the University of Missouri and the city of Columbia both include gender identity in their respective nondiscrimination policies.

Over the next month, Columbia Public Schools administrators and the Columbia Missouri National Education Association will collect information regarding policies addressing transgender students from around the state and the country.

The committee is scheduled to meet May 26 to consider the policy change again and vote on submitting it to the full school board for consideration.
