Topic: Transgender Students: Law and Practice

 

Speaker: Jennifer A. Mueller of Hodges, Loizzi Eisenhammper, Rodick & Kohn LLP

 

Jennifer Mueller practices in all areas of school law, specializing in student and special education matters. She is a member of the National and Illinois Council of School Attorneys. Ms. Mueller received her bachelor's degree in Public Affairs from Indiana University, her master's degree in Education Policy from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, and her law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law. During law school, Ms. Mueller served an internship at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and also worked at the firm as a summer associate. Prior to law school, Ms. Mueller taught in the School District of Philadelphia and, after earning her master's degree, worked as a researcher for the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE) at the University of Pennsylvania.

Summary: Transgender students continue to be on the national stage after several federal and state lawsuits put them front-and-center regarding transgender student rights -- especially since federal guidance, federal law, and state law/policy currently remain unaligned. Join us for the latest information on this evolving area of law, including: the current state of the law with respect to transgender students; the status of legal battles taking place around the country; and the practical implications for school districts, transgender students, and their families.

The DCBA’s presentation regarding transgender students in schools is not intended to provide one size fits all legal advice for what are very sensitive and complex social and legal issues. We urge school boards and their communities to use this information as a balanced, objective resource in your conversations, and to support the mission of public schools to educate our nation’s children in safe learning environments.
