From DESE, Commissioner's Weekly Update – February 24, 2017:

Transgender Guidance:

The changes at the federal level this week have not changed the protections in place for transgender students in Massachusetts. States can issue their own guidance, which can exceed federal guidelines. The Massachusetts state statute, which predates the federal guidance, ensures protections for all students and prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity. An Act Relative to Gender Identity (Chapter 199 of the Acts of 2011), amended several Massachusetts statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of specified categories, including gender identity, and subsequently, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issued guidance ( to school districts to implement the gender identity provision.
