School Board Votes to Reject Demands in Transgender Case

The school board voted 6-3 last night to reject the terms of a Demand Letter from attorneys representing the family of a BASH student who says he was made uncomfortable by a transgender student changing in the boy’s locker room.

The Demand Letter asked the school to make bathrooms, locker rooms and changing areas available to students based on biological/anatomical sex.

The family of a BASH student filed a complaint in Philadelphia Federal Court March 21 against the school district, claiming their son was made uncomfortable by a transgender student changing in the boy’s locker room and finding fault with the way the administration handled the situation.

The complaint stems from an event that occurred in late October 2016. The Demand Letter said that if the demands listed in the letter were not met by April 4th, the complaint would be served.

The District has said it contests the claims of the lawsuit and that it will defend actions it believes were consistent and compliant with the law.
