A memo from the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) being shared on social media directs teachers and staff not to share gender or pronoun changes with parents.
The memo, dated Sept. 28, 2021, says the best practice is to prioritize student confidentiality and privacy.
“Parents should not be contacted without the student’s consent about any change in identifiers,” the memo said.
The memo was sent out by Cecil Roach, associate director of Education, Schools, Programs and Equitable Outcomes, and Fawzia Durrani, principal of Inclusive School and Community Services, and says educators must let students take the lead.
