PA Policy Allowing Students to Choose Bathroom Remains in Place After SCOTUS Declines Challenge

HeadlineMay 29, 2019

Back at the Supreme Court, justices decided not to hear a challenge to a Pennsylvania school district’s policy allowing students to use bathrooms that correspond to their gender. Trans and civil rights activists applauded the news. Aidan DeStefano, a transgender graduate of Boyertown High, the school at the heart of the legal case, issued the following response via the ACLU: “By the time I graduated high school, I was using the boys’ bathroom and participating on the boys’ cross country team. I felt like I belonged and had the confidence I needed to continue with my education. I’m glad the Supreme Court is allowing schools like mine to continue supporting transgender students.”
