​Education is a fundamental right of each and every student in Illinois. However, structural, social or implicit barriers may exist for students that are transgender, nonbinary or gender nonconforming. This webpage is designed to provide support to school districts as they, in turn, seek to support ALL students in Illinois schools. Further, this webpage also serves to apprise LGBTQ students of their rights under relevant law​.  ​​​​​
