- The largest public school system in Maryland saw a 582% increase in the number of students identifying as non-binary over two years, according to a snapshot of data shared by a district official.
- Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) provides an intake form to students every year designed to understand and support a student’s gender identity. The form asks students for their “identified name,” “identified gender” and their preferred pronouns.
- Students are also asked whether or not their parents or guardians are aware of their gender and, if so, to rank their level of support on a scale from 1 to 10. The form notes that parents and guardians should only be involved in the completion of the form if they are aware and supportive of the child’s gender identity.
