HANOVER TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- A policy in a New Jersey school district requiring teachers to disclose to parents the gender identity and sexual orientation of their children is being challenged by the state's attorney general.
The Hanover Township Board of Education on Tuesday implemented the new policy, which directs school staff to immediately inform parents on a variety of issues about their children -- from anxiety and self-harm to sexual orientation and gender identity.
"What is really being indoctrinated is the board of education, with their conservative political views, are trying to force that on all the rest of us," parent Stephanie Eagan said.
"I think every parent should be aware of the sexual identity of their child, absolutely," Michael Milano said.
The state Attorney General's Office is filing a civil rights complaint against the district and requesting an emergency court order to stop the board of ed from implementing the policy the state calls discriminatory because it targets transgender students and kids who identify as LGBTQ+ and that it "exposes them to severe harms to their safety and mental health."
One mother and daughter that spoke to CBS2 oppose the district's new policy.
"I think you would, like, not trust your teachers after that one," seventh grader Anabel Monaco said.
"You should know if your kid is living at home what's going on," Randi Monaco said.
An LGBTQ+ advocacy group is speaking out against the policy, saying LGBTQ+ children often don't live in homes that accept them.
"That's why we have the unfortunate reality of LGBTQ youth representing the highest in the youth homeless population. So they shouldn't have to live with the fear of being outed in their home environment," said Christian Fuscarino, executive director of Garden State Equality.
The school district said, "The policy does not unlawfully discriminate against any student on the basis of any protected status," adding the staff members have an obligation "if they see something that could adversely affect the social/emotional well-being of a child."
The Hanover Township Board of Education says it will vigorously defend what it calls a "common-sense policy that protects parental rights and ensures the safety of children."
The Attorney General's Office says its complaint does not challenge other aspects of the policy, such as informing parents if their child is dealing with substance abuse.

A state Superior Court has temporarily prohibited the Hanover Township Board of Education from implementing a policy that would require school staff to disclose to parents the gender identity and sexual orientation of its LGBTQ+ students.
The order remains in effect until the court can hear arguments from both sides on May 30.
The Board of Education approved the policy Tuesday night in a divided vote. It requires teachers to report to parents and to school administrators "any facts or circumstances that may have a material impact" on a student’s well being because of a range of factors. Gender identity and sexual orientation are among those factors, which include depression, academic and athletic performance, and bullying.
The court order, issued Friday, was made in response to an emergency request filed by state Attorney General Matthew Platkin after he sued the school district Wednesday for implementing the policy, which the state says would effectively require teachers to "out" LBGTQ+ students.
The school district has said its policy is not discriminatory and that it will "vigorously defend" itself. Court arguments from the two parties are expected to begin May 30, according to a statement released by the Attorney General's Office.
"We are gratified that the Superior Court has temporarily prohibited the Hanover Township Board of Education from implementing its policy requiring school staff to out LGBTQ+ youth to their parents," Platkin said in a statement Friday evening. "We look forward to presenting our argument to the court."
The state's lawsuit challenges only the inclusion of language in the policy on gender identity, LGBTQ+ and transitioning students, which it says violates state law by discriminating against the protected categories of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Schools in New Jersey are required to accept a student's preferred gender identity and pronouns without parental consent, according to the state's Law Against Discrimination and the state Department of Education's Transgender Student Guidance issued in 2018.
The attorney general's lawsuit says the new policy adopted by Hanover Township not only violates state law but is in contradiction with its own existing transgender student policies.

It should come as no surprise that the football team with the longest winning streak in the state of New Jersey holds itself to the highest of standards.
For Caldwell, it is a balancing act of enjoying the journey and the wins while taking nothing for granted, but at the same time knowing the level of football it will take to win the crucial games in November.
Despite some sloppiness in the first half on the offensive side of the ball, Caldwell cruised to a 27-0 shutout of Hanover Park on Friday evening to extend its state-best winning-streak to an eye-popping 33 games. It says a lot about the level of talent on Caldwell that despite not playing to its peak, the Chiefs were able to defeat another 4-0 team by four scores.
“Our coach is the best,” senior linebacker Julian Casale said. “When the sun comes up and it goes back down the next day it is a new day. You just forget about the past and it’s onto the present. We’re going to watch film tomorrow and correct all of our mistakes, whether it’s our personal job or just jumping off sides. We have to get it fixed for next week.”
Even though Caldwell was keeping Hanover Park within striking distance for much of the first three quarters, the Chiefs always felt completely in control of the game. That’s what happens when you have a defense that only allowed the Hornets two first downs for the entirety of the game -- both of which came in the first half.
The strong defensive effort started right away after a Caldwell missed field goal when Jake Gruzas made an interception along the sideline to give the ball right back to the Chiefs. They scored on their first play of scrimmage as Joey Marinello ran for a 22-yard score for Caldwell’s first touchdown of the game.
The offense began to stagnate for much of the first half for Caldwell from that point forward in large part due to penalties. Caldwell proceeded to go three-and-out on its next two possessions -- the latter of which resulted in a blocked punt and Hanover Park taking over near midfield.
Still, the Hornets could find zero room offensively. Casale -- one of the state’s best linebackers -- was once again dominant. On Hanover Park’s third possession of the game, he timed a blitz through the “A” gap perfectly and finished off the sack. It was his first of two on the evening.
“We knew it was going to rain so their pass game would not be as effective, as their run game” Casale said. “We had to make them rely on their pass game because we wanted to shut down their run game with the rain.”
Caldwell drove down into the red zone on a 14-play drive after getting the ball back when Hanover Park could not tie advantage of its good field position, but a botched snap got the Chiefs behind the chains and they could not recover before turning it over on downs.
When the defense got another stop, this time it was Caldwell’s special teams that blocked a punt. Mike Mignone blocked it for the Chiefs and the ball bounced off the hands of multiple players from both teams trying to recover before it finally was halted all the way at the Hanover Park one-yard line. Marinello finished that off with a touchdown and Caldwell took a 14-0 lead into halftime.
The defense forced its second turnover of the game to start the second half as Sean Murtaugh recovered a fumble on what would have been a 3rd-and-15 conversion for the Hornets before the ball was knocked away with a big hit in the secondary.
Caldwell was then able to go no a nice drive to make it a 21-0 lead with 4:35 left in the third quarter. Louie Anemone found Mike Mignone on a fourth-and-eight at the Hanover Park 31 for a 13-yard gain. That led to Anemone eventually running it in for a three-yard touchdown.
“We knew we very physically and mentally stronger than them,” Casale said, “We had more endurance, so we just kept battling. Penalties stalled us back a bit, but we were just battling on every drive.”
The Chiefs have Madison, Cedar Grove and Mountain Lakes remaining on their schedule before they start to trek of trying to repeat as Group 2 state champions.

Demolition of the former U.S. headquarters of the global pharma giant Novartis in East Hanover was on hold this week as the developer announced it will propose a scaled-down project to replace the modern industrial park approved by the township in 2021.
A spokesperson for developers R&O East Hanover said Thursday that the company "is presenting an as-of-right redevelopment of the former Novartis property which requires no variances and proposes a smaller/less intensive project that the historical site use."
The announcement comes after the township planning board rejected an application last month for Novartis to subdivide a 17-acre portion of the property it still owns there.
R&O announced it had acquired 62 acres of the Novartis campus in 2021. At the time of the sale, the company planned to demolish 900,000 square feet of empty office space on the campus, including the iconic eight-story tower that sits atop a corner knoll on Route 10.
Groundbreaking on two new "modern industrial space" buildings there, ranging between 300,000 and 500,000 square feet, was anticipated before the end of 2022.
Demolition of campus buildings began last year. Many of the buildings along Ridgedale Avenue, on the west end of the campus, are gone, but the tower remains.
Novartis representatives told the board they had a buyer for the 17-acre parcel on the east side of the campus who planned to renovate the existing buildings there for tenants in the life science technology field.
The board rejected the application, with members expressing concern about inconsistencies with the township master plan and the lack of road frontage.
Novartis still continues operations in neighboring buildings to the south. The entire 202-acre Novartis campus prior to the sale was assessed at $425 million in 2021 and generated $10.2 million in property taxes for the township, tax records show.
Regardless of the outcome, the tower is still slated for eventual demolition.
"Demolition of the existing structures began last fall and should be completed over the next several months," the R&O spokesperson said. "We look forward to proceeding with our proposed development once the approval process has concluded."
Sandoz, based in Switzerland, acquired the property in the late 1940s after outgrowing its offices in New York and began construction on the first buildings there in 1950.
Sandoz became one of Morris County's leading employers when it opened its East Hanover research facility in 1964. It merged with Summit-based Ciba-Geigy in 1996 to form Novartis. The company still has 4,800 employees assigned to the East Hanover campus, and 16,000 statewide, a Novartis spokesperson said.
