NAME AND/OR GENDER WITHOUT A NAME CHANGE FORM
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT SCHOOL WHEN A STUDENT REQUESTS OPTION 1?
NAME AND/OR GENDER WITH A NAME CHANGE FORM
To get a Name Change Form, contact the Student Services office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Name Change Form must be signed by a parent or guardian if the student is under the age of 18.
If the name and/or gender change is a Legal Change, then court documents will be required.
If the name and/or gender change is not a legal change, the student can still change their name without court documents using the one page MUSD form with parent or guardian signature. In this case, the legal name/birth name will remain hidden in the data systems, but the student's asserted name and/or gender will now appear as the roster name in all MUSD information systems.
Email a scanned copy of the Name Change Form (signed by a parent or guardian) to email@example.com or bring a hard copy to the MUSD District Office.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT SCHOOL WHEN A STUDENT REQUESTS OPTION 2?
The student will be referred to by their asserted name and pronouns.
The student's roster name and/or gender will be changed in Aeries and reflected on all printed rosters, etc. Other MUSD and California data systems update within 48 hours.
School site staff make changes to the cumulative record folder, student ID, diploma, etc.
Teachers and staff are informed confidentially by the counselor or principal.
Teachers and staff maintain confidentiality and do not share about the student's gender identity with other students or people who do not need to know.
Tech help desk request will be needed to change name for district email and Google Classroom.
Please note: Only a legal name change with court documents will change the name on graduation transcripts.
