Some Olathe students and teachers question standing gender identity, parental notification policy

“Kids that we teach all share one thing in common; they want to be loved and respected."


The Olathe school district Education Center, which is home to several of the administrative offices, is located at 14160 Black Bob Rd. 

It’s been a year since the Olathe school district drafted new guidance for addressing gender identity in the classroom, but some students, teachers and community members are again questioning whether the guidance is the best way to proceed.

Their concern? They’re afraid the policy could “out” a student to parents who might not be supportive.
