Gender-Diverse Students' Experiences in AISD

Gender-diverse secondary students (i.e., students in grades 6-11 who identify as transgender, nonbinary, or questioning) continue to report a more challenging school climate than their cisgender peers, according to results from the 2020-2021 AISD Student Climate Survey. This report highlights the largest differences in students' perceptions and includes qualitative responses from gender-diverse students about when they feel welcome or unwelcome at school. Recommendations for strengthening supports for gender-diverse students are discussed.
