Parents Appeal Transgender Policy At Louisville High School

A group of parents have appealed a decision that allows transgender students to use facilities that correspond with their sexual identities. 

The Atherton High School site-based decision-making council will meet next week to discuss the appeal, which was filed by Louisville attorney Clinton Elliott, who is with the Christian-based legal group Alliance Defending Freedom. 

The council voted last month to amend its policy after school Principal Thomas Aberli decided to allow a transgender student to use the girls' restroom and locker room.  The student was born male but identifies as female.
