FCPS Public School Parents:

What are your rights on the transgender issue? 


Mary E. McAlister, Esq.

Senior Litigation Counsel Liberty Counsel * 

  * Did the FCPS School Board have the legal authority to add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the non-discrimination policy and the Students’ Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) document? 

* Do parents’ and students’ have a right to disagree? 

* What can happen if you and your students choose not sign the SR&R? 

Learn how you can legally object to the Fairfax Public School’s addition of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the non-discrimination policy and Students’ Rights and Responsibility guidelines.


These changes will affect every student, teacher, and all school staff when they are fully implemented.
