Initial Draft of LGBTQ Guide Released by LCS

Initial Draft of LGBTQ Guide Released by LCS

Leon County Schools has released the initial draft of a revised LGBTQ Inclusive School Guide (Guide) which will be reviewed by a committee of stakeholders beginning in May. After the review, the Guide will be presented to the Leon County School Board.

There are notable differences from previous publications dedicated to this issue.

The initial draft Guide does not include the ten pages of forms previously identified as the “Leon County School District Transgender/Gender Nonconforming Student Support Plan.”

The initial draft Guide does not include separate guidance related to actions to be taken in classrooms.

The initial draft Guide does have a section titled “When a Student Comes Out to You…” The section recommends using inclusive language and setting an accepting environment by not making assumptions about people’s sexual orientation or gender identity. The section also notes that “If the student needs support, the school personnel must notify the parent.”

Listed below are the best practices recommended in the draft Guide for selected issues:


Federal law does not address allowing a transgender student to play on a team consistent with their gender identity and expression.

As a result of Senate Bill 1028/Florida Statute 1006.205, athletic teams or sports designated for female, women, or girls may not be open to students of the male sex. A statement of a student’s biological sex on the student’s official birth certificate is considered to have correctly stated the biological sex if the statement was filed at or near the student’s birth.

Speaking About Gender

Federal courts have found students have a constitutional right to be “out” at school.

Schools will not silence students who are open about their sexual orientation or gender identify, or who question their orientation or gender identity.

Gay, Straight, Alliance Clubs

Under the Federal Equal Access Act, a public school permitting any non- curricular club must also allow students to form a GSA. The school must also treat the GSA the same as it does any other non- curricular club in terms of access to facilities, resources, and opportunities to advertise.

Schools will permit students to form GSA clubs. The clubs will comply with S. B. Rule 4.06 “Student Clubs and Organizations.”

Name, Pronouns

Federal or Florida state law does not require schools to call a student by a requested name or use gender pronouns consistent with their gender identity. However, Chapter 1014 F.S. does reserve the right to the parent to direct the education and care as well as to direct the upbringing of his or her minor child. Intentionally misgendering a student could be considered bullying or harassment.

The parent or student of legal age will notify the school of the preferred name and gender pronoun corresponding to the one consistently asserted by their gender identity.

Name Change

Documentation from a Florida court is required to reflect a change in name and/or gender in a student’s official school records.

School will only modify student records to reflect a change in name or gender upon receipt of such documentation from a Florida court. While official student records must contain the student’s legal name, schools should permit the use of preferred name on unofficial records to assist staff in calling the student the preferred name. The guardian or student of legal age can add the preferred name in the FOCUS portal.

Change in Wellbeing

HB1557 and Chapter 1014 F.S. require the parent to be notified if there is a change in a students’ mental, emotional, or physical health or wellbeing.

School personnel will notify a parent if there is a change in a students’ services or monitoring related to the students’ mental, emotional, or physical health or wellbeing.

“Outing” Students

The U.S. Supreme Court recognizes the federal constitutional right to privacy, which extends to students in a school setting.

School personnel will not disclose information about a students’ sexual orientation, transgender identity or questions they may have about their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Segregating Students by Sex

Title IX regulations permit offering single-sex classes under certain circumstances. The general rule under Title IX is that a recipient may not exclude, separate, deny benefits to, or otherwise treat differently any person on the basis of sex in its education programs or activities—including classes and extracurricular activities—unless expressly authorized to do so under Title IX or the Department’s implementing regulations.

Students can join a school sponsored club that corresponds to their consistently asserted transgender identity. Students can be separated by sex in class for contact sports in physical education classes and other topics such as Human Growth and Development.

  1. Schools need to stick to teaching children not grooming them. Queer shit does not need to be a part of any school from K-12! If a young man or woman (note, there are only two genders) wants to mutilate himself or herself (note, there are only two genders) after reaching adulthood, that is their choice. If a parent wants to mutilate his or her child the parent needs to be investigated for abuse.

  2. Bottom line, under our state constitution and the sub servant federal constitution our children are the property of their parents. The parents, as one of the People has full control over what is taught to their child and any public servant who violates the statutes and constitutional limitations that bind them can be held legally accountable, but you have to learn how to write and file the paperwork. CPS or DFS has NO jurisdiction over you or your children. The DFS courts are NOT courts of record and the Judge is not acting as a court Judge, nor are they paid from state taxes, as they are when they are acting as real Judges in courts of record.

    Now thinking of your children as property may sound harsh but this sets the legal precedence that no one may deprive you of your property with out someone bearing whiteness against you under sworn affidavit and after judgment by a jury of your peers.

    Rocky and all of the board members have been educated via constitutional notice served by certified mail. They can no longer claim any kind of ignorance. This means if they step over the line we can go after them immediately . We can go after their surety bonds, check out bondsforthewin dot com. We can serve them affidavits, which is what I did, and take them to arbitration of our choice, at their expense. We can even hold them criminally liable for knowingly violating their oat of office.

    All of this is maladministration, and any public servant can be removed for maladministration. Better yet is to keep digging in the financial records, the FBI of late has been hot to go after local government financial fraud. There are several cases being investigated.

    The financial records for last year have been posted online for LCBS for anyone to do research.

  3. Why are democrats so bent on talking about sex to little kids? Teachers shouldn’t be talking about gay or straight sex to K-6 grades. If a student has sex or gender questions tell them to ask their parents end of story. Discussions shouldn’t go beyond stating the fact that some people may have two mommy’s or two daddy’s.

  4. Pope Francis recently finished his sermon. He ended it with the Latin phrase, “Tuti Homini” – Blessed be Mankind.

    A Woman’s Rights Group approached the Pope the next day. They noticed that the Pope blessed all Mankind, but not Womankind. So the next day, after his sermon, the Pope concluded by saying, “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini” – Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.

    The day after, a Gay Rights Group approached the Pope. They said that they noticed that he blessed Mankind and Womankind and asked if he could also bless gay people.The Pope said, “Sure.” The next day the Pope concluded his sermon with, “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini, et Tuti Fruiti.

  5. These groomers got to go folks. In the mean time, protect your children by keeping them away from the Public Indoctrination System and their team of groomers.

  6. Home school your kids. Moron County schools has swallowed the trans gendered nonsense hook line and sinker. You won’t get any education in public schools now.

  7. The school board is pretty confidant local voters support the queerification of Leon County’s babies or they would have 100% been able to put this public release of their queerification manifesto quietly on the back burner until sometime soon after they are all reelected.
    Think about it the school board did not have to put this in potental voters faces now and by doing so they are basically telling everyone opposed to their grooming/queerafication agenda to go to hell.

  8. To anyone trying to push the sexualiztion of children in schools and opposed to the Parental Rights Bill, just say, “Ok, groomer”. This apparently sets them off like a firecracker.

  9. Why are Democrats, their Media PACs, hollyweird hacks, and woke company slacks like Disney so obsessed with our children’s sexuality and protecting pedophiles?… or is the answer in the question itself.

  10. What is happening in our school system?
    Leon County? I went to school in Leon County Schools in the 80’s. When I went to school we went to learn math, science, English, history, physical education, typing, etc..
    We didn’t talk about sexual orientation back then. That was handled at home where it should be addressed not in public or at school. We didn’t recognize people by their color, we acknowledged each other as human beings. Not democrat or republican either, we were Americans. Everything has to have a label now. Just go to school to learn! Figure out who or what you are on your own time!

  11. Satan has done a great job corrupting our schools and the Democrat Party. The parents that do not get their child help after learning they think they are the opposite sex, probably shouldn’t have had children. The fact that Florida Schools is even addressing this problem is a Red Flag. In the Human race, there are only two sexes. If you disagree, you are qualified to be a Biden Supreme Court Justice

  12. A great improvement in the guide thanks to Governor DeSantis and the Republican led legislature. It’s pathetic that we have to rely on state law makers to protect parents’ rights and to protect students from woke school personnel.

    So another school year has been spent on disordered progressive politics. Maybe, next school year can be spent on reading, writing and arithmetic. That would, of course, require a leadership change.
