Gender Expansive Options, Legal Names, and Information Systems: a deeper look. Choate Rosemary Hall has begun a school initiative to conform to federal and more recent state statues regarding gender and legal names.

Students have the right to self identify their gender. While a student's sex at birth may be recorded, it needs to be protected and limited to approved personnel. The School must restrict access to a student's legal name. Students have the right to use a preferred first name that is used in the creation of accounts and displayed in directories. This session explores the challenges of shifting information systems to conform with changing expectations. Learn about Choate's approach, identification process, action plan, and missteps. Leave with an increased awareness of where your school stands in terms of inclusion and compliance.
