Problem / Issue
Good afternoon Patricia!
As part of fully implementing the Gender Recognition Act, MiraCosta College has convened a small group of folx to work on bringing the District into full compliance, provide training and to become advocates wherever possible. I have the honor and pleasure of working with this amazing team and we have a suggestion for a revision to the CCCApply application naming conventions that is more inclusive (and less traumatic).
Current Full Name
Legally Assigned Full Name
Preferred or Alternate Name
I hope that you will bring this suggestion to the next CCCApply Steering Committee meeting to see if the group agrees that this would be more inclusive way to ask for this information.
I am including Van Ethan Levy (MA, Clinical Psychology) in this email string in case you have any specific follow-up questions regarding the wording. Van is one of the educators and advocates that are part of the team.
Below is an example of how the wording appears currently in CCCApply.

To Be Determined
Patty will include this item on the "Review Question Language" sub-committee which is scheduled for next week and one the week after TG.
Patty will work with John Sills to discuss how this might fit into the redesign plans.
