A fight at Hercules High School last month that involved a transgender student prompted the West Contra Costa Unified School District board to hold a special meeting. The fight, which involved three female students and one 16-year-old transgender student, broke out at Hercules High School on Nov. 15. All four students were suspended after the incident, which, according to Hercules police, started when the transgender student hit a female student in the school’s courtyard. That girl and two others then started fighting the transgender student, Jewelyes Guitierrez. Guitierrez said she tried to get help from the vice principal in the days before the fight, but the administrator didn’t know the extent of the bullying. The school board concluded that it needed a sexual harassment policy to protect students.
