NEW HOLLAND, Pa. (WHTM) – The Eastern Lancaster County School District is moving forward with a plan to provide private locker rooms.
The district says when the restrooms are not available, students should use facilities dedicated to their biological sex.
The policy essentially reverses a decision the board made to allow a transgender student who identifies as a male to use the boy’s locker room.
“The policy itself is going to be a challenge initially because the facilities aren’t up to speed with what the policy says,” superintendent Dr. Robert Hollister said. “We’ll do our best from the administrative level of the operations to adjust the facilities, to adjust procedures and protocols to match that policy as closely as we can.”
The policy will take effect in May. There is a school board meeting next month where members may make changes.
