TRANSGENDER-BATHROOM
Louisville high school to let transgender students use bathrooms of their sexual identities

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, June 7, 2014 1:03 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


A Louisville high school has passed a policy allowing transgender students to use the restrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sexual identities.

Atherton High School Principal Thomas Aberli told The Courier-Journal a school council voted 8-1 on Thursday in favor of the policy. Aberli said he hopes other schools are paying attention to the issue.

Henry Brousseau is a transgender student who will be a junior at Louisville Collegiate School this fall. He said he was paying attention to the vote at Atherton. He hopes the school's action will push Jefferson County Public Schools to take an official stand on the issue.

Currently the school district allows individual schools to set their own policies on the use of school facilities.
