HE or SHE: Has Trump's ED Dept Gone PC on Pronouns?

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued an internal memorandum earlier this month announcing that it will investigate taxpayer-funded teachers and administrators who use biologically accurate pronouns for transgender students instead of the pronouns transgender students prefer.
Candice Jackson, the Trump administration’s acting secretary for civil rights within the Department of Education since April, issued the internal memo on June 6.
Does that mean we'd have to ask Rudy if he wants to 
be refered to as a HE, HIM or SHE, HERE?
The memo explains “the effects of developments on the enforcement of Title IX” concerning transgender students.
Specifically, the memo declares, the federal government may investigate taxpayer-funded schools for “refusing to use a transgender student’s preferred name or pronouns when the school uses preferred names for gender-conforming students or when the refusal is motivated by animus toward people who do not conform to sex stereotypes.”
