A recently approved Minnesota Department of Education “toolkit” instructs schools to isolate students who are concerned about sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with transgender students.

On Wednesday, an advisory council for the Minnesota DOE approved a new toolkit, titled “Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students,” which provides public schools with advice for how schools should interact with and protect transgender and “gender-noncomforming” students.

The Minnesota Star Tribune reported the toolkit is nonbinding and could be edited in the future, according to Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius.

The toolkit’s stated goal is “to help school districts and charter schools create school environments where transgender and gender nonconforming students are safe, supported and fully included, and have equal access to the educational opportunities provided to all students as required by federal or state law.”

Among the many ways the toolkit says schools can create a welcoming environment for transgender students, from kindergarten through 12th grade, is to provide transgender students with access to bathrooms and locker rooms that conform with students’ gender identity and to segregate students concerned with privacy.
