LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville high school is discussing whether to add gender identity to its non-discrimination policy after fielding complaints about a transgender student being allowed to use the girls' restroom and locker room.
The Courier-Journal reports Atherton High School Principal Thomas Aberli is taking the issue to the school's site-based council, which meets on Thursday.
Aberli gave the freshman, who was born male but identifies as a female, permission to sue the girls' facilities. That decision led to several student complaints and phone calls from concerned parents.
Aberli said he responded to the concerns by allowing the student to use only one of the school's two girls' facilities.
He says he is asking for feedback from parents, student and community members and will submit that at the meeting.
