After multiple delays, Nevada top education official on Friday approved guidance for school districts on how to handle students with gender diverse identities.
State Superintendent of Instruction Steve Canavero heard more than 65 comments in the third public hearing on the state regulation, mandated by an anti-bullying law passed by the Nevada Legislature in 2017. Just before 2pm, after almost five hours, Canavero adopted the 16-page regulation and explained the next steps.
“It goes to the Legislative Commission, which is a committee of legislators that will have the opportunity to hear this regulation and, ultimately, their vote would enact the regulation and codify it into Nevada Administrative Code,” Canavero said.
