It’s always good to see schools preemptively adapt to their students. A school district in Clifton Park, New York has started the process to officially allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. This is the first case that I’ve seen where a school began putting policies like this up for a vote without any legal pressure or public pressure related to a current student. They will require the students to have some sort of “documentation” (presumably a doctor’s note or some other medical personnel’s diagnosis with gender identity disorder, or something similar), as well as permission from high-ranking school officials. I would guess that these restrictions were put into place to help quell some adult concerns about sexual assaults and boys sneaking into the women’s room. In my opinion, it would be incredibly difficult for a teenage boy to truly, passably, fake being transgender, but apparently not everyone agrees with that. The school makes a point to specify the “gender identity that the student exclusively and consistently asserts at school,” which is, again, a smart way to clarify that this is meant for students well into their transition.
