Chicago-area school district under fire again over transgender locker room policy

AP TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS A FILE USA WA

CHICAGO —  A suburban Chicago school district that previously faced the threat of having federal funding stripped over its decision to bar a transgender student from using the girls’ locker room is now facing a lawsuit from another student.

Nova Maday, a senior at the District 211’s Palatine Township High School, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the district alleging school officials have illegally discriminated against her by making her change for gym class separate from other girls.

The district had faced a federal discrimination complaint by another transgender student over the issue of locker room access in 2013.

The matter was settled when the district agreed to accommodate her — the plaintiff was known as Student A — after the district was warned by the Obama Administration that it was violating Title IX, a federal law that bans sex discrimination. It was the first time a school system was found to be in conflict with Title IX rules based on gender identity.
