Despite a change in federal guidelines Selinsgrove School District will not be changing its policy on transgender bathrooms — at least for now.
“The district will continue to study information as it becomes available as well as wait to see what the Supreme Court decides on the issue,” Selinsgrove Superintendent Chad Cohrs told the Orange Street News in an email.
Yesterday the Trump administration announced it would withdraw President Obama guidelines that schools must allow transgender students to use any bathroom they want to use. President Trump’s guidelines state that local schools are allowed to decide the issue themselves.
The Selinsgrove School board had earlier said that they were simply following federal guidelines when they changed the policy to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice.
