PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pennsylvania school district will allow students to use restrooms that correspond to their "consistently and uniformly asserted gender identity" in settling a federal lawsuit brought last year by three transgender students.The school district confirmed the settlement, which Lambda called "a victory for transgender students everywhere" and a "clear warning to school districts with anti-transgender bathroom policies."The district must also adopt policies "that respect transgender students' gender identity with respect to student records, names, pronouns, and restrooms, among other aspects," Lambda said in the statement announcing the settlement.The U.S. Department of Education under President Barack Obama issued non-binding guidelines to school districts that Title IX was to be interpreted as applying to transgender students' identities, too, but that guidance was rescinded by the department earlier this year under President Donald Trump.
