Gender Support

Aligning with CREC’s statement of Diversity and Inclusion, “...While at CREC Magnet Schools, staff and students commit to affirm and honor the lived experiences of others…,” CREC schools and programs have the goal of creating and sustaining safe, inclusive, respectful and healthful environments for all students. 


  • CREC staff honor ad affirm students' requests to use names and pronouns consistent with the student's identity and expression. 

  • CREC Schools treat students according to their gender identity and expression, including when accessing restroom and locker room facilities. 

If you need help ensuring your chosen name and gender are recognized and respected at school, please speak with a trusted staff member. CREC works closely with students and families to ensure schools create a safe and supportive environment for students experiencing gender transition.
