ECSB passes amendment to add transgenders to non-discrimination policy

Tonight the Escambia County school board passed an amendment to add transgender students in their non-discrimination policies.

The Escambia County school system's student's right and responsibilities handbook already bans discrimination's.
And tonight the board specifically included gender identity and expression in the discrimination clause.

Earlier this year, the U.S Department of Education and the Department of Justice laid out guidelines to help reduce civil complaints made from transgender students, towards school districts.
