     2  subdivision 6 to read as follows:
     3    6.  Policies  and  procedures  that ensure that schools do not treat a
     4  transgender or gender non-conforming student differently  from  the  way
     5  they  treat  other  students  of  the  same  gender  identity  or gender
     6  expression that include, but are not limited to policies which:
     7    a. ensure that schools and school employees treat students consistent-
     8  ly with their gender identity or expression,  including  using  pronouns
     9  and  names  consistent with the student's gender identity or expression,
    10  even if their education records or identification documents  indicate  a
    11  different  sex. Schools shall not require that students obtain a medical
    12  diagnosis, treatment, or identification  documents  that  reflect  their
    13  gender identity or expression as a prerequisite to treating the students
    14  consistent with their gender identity or expression;
    15    b.  allow  students  to  participate  in sex-segregated activities and
    16  access sex-segregated facilities, including but  not  limited  to  rest-
    17  rooms,  locker rooms, athletics teams, student organizations, single-sex
    18  classes, and student housing or overnight accommodations,  in  a  manner
    19  consistent with the student's gender identity or expression; and
    20    c.  protect  students'  privacy related to their transgender or gender
    21  non-conforming status, including their birth name  or  sex  assigned  at
    22  birth,  and allow students to request that a school amend information in
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
