Hey friends, I’m a mentor of an FRC team and I wanted to let that other mentor know that if they are a team based around a school (especially public), they may bump into some policy issues regarding transgender students. For example, on our team, the school district insists students room with other students of their GAAB (unfortunately) if we take students out of school and that is something we have to work on changing to make sure all of our FRC students are treated as they should be.
That is true and thank you for replying. Hopefully, legislation changes to make it mandatory for schools to respect their trans students, but that is not the case right now.
