A recent ruling in California has reinforced parental rights in decisions regarding their children’s gender identity.

The Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) approved a policy requiring teachers to notify parents if their children request to use a name, pronouns, or sex-segregated facilities that do not align with their biological sex. This decision was made after a lengthy public meeting involving various stakeholders, including LGBTQ activists and concerned parents.

The board of trustees adopted the policy by a 4-1 vote. This regulation stipulates that schools must contact parents within three school days following any such requests from their children. The policy also clarifies that a student’s gender identity remains confidential, known only to the student and their parent(s).

In a statement, the RUSD trustees said, “We trust our parents to know what is best for their children. We believe that the best way to address these challenges is together, with open communication and clear expectations. The board’s action to strengthen parental notification and communication reinforces our commitment to include parents in school activities and decisions related to their child.”

The decision sparked a heated debate among attendees. Some, like LGBTQ activist Jay Smith, viewed the policy as an act of violence against transgender students. Others, including concerned parents and local politicians, saw it as a necessary safeguard for parental rights and involvement in their children’s lives.

Assemblyman Bill Essayli (R-23), who has championed a similar policy at the state level (AB 1314), posed the question: “What this whole issue is about is: Who gets to raise our kids? Who gets to raise the next generation of Californians? Is it the government, or is it their parents?”

This decision comes at a time when the administration of Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has been actively opposing parental notification policies. California State Attorney General Rob Bonta (D) won a temporary restraining order against the first district to approve a parental rights policy, Chino Valley Unified School District in San Bernardino County.

Despite the backlash, support for parental rights in these matters seems to be growing. So far, five school districts have approved similar policies, with more potentially following suit.
