Menasha School District officials allowed a transgender senior at Menasha High School, who school leaders say identifies as a female, to put on a band uniform in the same area as female band students. The uniforms go over regular street clothes. The superintendent told a reporter on the phone the district constantly makes accommodations for students without informing parents. Instead, only those who would be impacted are notified. Schools officials refer to the transgender student as a she. They say the district made the accommodation because it takes the needs of all students into account and does not discriminate.
It is unclear if the school district takes the need for privacy into account, at least when such need is asserted by girls.
