The Clear Creek Independent School District is committed to providing each student a safe and nurturing learning environment free from discrimination and harassment. The school district staff is trained on how to deal with the varying, complex and sensitive issues that may arise under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which is a federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs.

 

In Texas, the scope of a transgender student’s right to use sex-specific restrooms, locker rooms, and overnight facilities is not legally settled.  Therefore each situation is handled on a case-by-case basis with a shared understanding that a transgender student’s right to not be discriminated against equals a non-transgender student’s right to privacy.

 

We have been successful in balancing the rights of all students without issue and offer restrooms, showers and changing areas for students seeking privacy, regardless of their gender or gender identity.
