Minneapolis Public Schools supports transgender students and staff 
 
MINNEAPOLIS – Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Ed Graff today issued the following statement about the District’s support for transgender students and staff.


“Every student has the right to a safe and welcoming education. Minneapolis Public Schools supports our transgender students, families and staff. We know diversity is a key strength of our educational community. MPS will continue to provide welcoming and affirming learning environments, and our protections for transgender students and staff – whom we are proud to support – will remain the same today as they were yesterday.

It’s important that we stay true to our values and to the needs of all our students and staff. I invite you to take this opportunity to review our policies, which you can find here: http://osfce.mpls.k12.mn.us/policy.”
