Using transgenic plants in high school teaching

We are currently in the early planning stage of a project to develop 
some plant biology laboratory exercises for high school students, and 
to put together workshops to train high school science teachers to 
use these exercises in their teaching.  We are unsure what 
regulations might pertain to the use of transgenic plants in these 
exercises.  Does anyone have experience with using transgenic plants 
in the context of high school teaching, or know which regulatory 
bodies would have this sort of thing under their purview?

We would very much appreciate any information or experiences anyone 
would be willing to share.  Thanks--
