UAF takes the protection of minors very seriously. UAF's Protection of Minors policy follows the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Administrative Regulation 130 regarding confidentiality. Personnel should not disclose a student's transgender status to others, including parents, and/or other personnel unless there is a specific "need to know." Protection of Minors information can be located at Environmental Health, Safety & Risk Management.
