School boards across Connecticut are adopting the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education recommended policy number 5145.53 or variations of it. Section (b) of the CABE policy states “School personnel should not disclose information that may reveal a student’s transgender status or gender non-conforming presentation to others, including parents and other school personnel, unless legally required to do so or unless the student has authorized such disclosure.” This is outrageous. Official Board of Education policies are being adopted that treat parents as enemies of their children.

The Family Institute of Connecticut is tracking the adoption of policy 5145.53 across our state. Are you aware of your local town or city adopting this policy regarding transgender students or a variation thereof? Is your local school board adopting curriculum changes that contradict your moral and religious values at home? We want to learn from your experience and may be able to provide support.

School Districts and 5145.53 . . this chart will be updated as we receive more information. Thank you for your assistance!
