Without notifying parents or students, Boyertown Area School District in Pennsylvania implemented a bathroom policy that allows biological males in girls’ facilities and biological females in boys’ facilities. As a result, a high school junior referred to as Joel Doe found himself undressing next to a girl. Doe confronted administrators about the situation and was told to either “tolerate” it or be homeschooled. Pennsylvania law requires schools to maintain sex-specific facilities. Doe’s parents have filed a lawsuit on behalf of their minor child for violation of his privacy rights. The district has until April 4 to respond.
