Ohio School District Sues Feds


Ohio school district sues feds for demanding that
students have access to opposite-sex locker rooms

ADF attorneys represent Board of Education of Highland Local School District

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing an Ohio school district filed suit Friday against the U.S. departments of Education and Justice for making federal educational funding dependent on students sharing overnight accommodations, locker rooms, showers, and restrooms with the opposite sex.

The Department of Education has threatened the federal funding of Highland Local School District—situated in Ohio’s Morrow, Knox, and Delaware counties—because officials there have not allowed a student who professes a gender that conflicts with that student’s biological sex to access intimate facilities like overnight accommodations, locker rooms, showers, and restrooms designated for and used by students of the opposite sex
