WV AG Reaffirms Advice to Local Schools Regarding Transgender Policy

February 24th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey sent a letter to state and county education officials reaffirming his guidance in the wake of President Trump’s announcement.
 
The letter cites President Trump’s directive that withdrew and rescinded Obama-era guidance, which threatened federal retribution against local school districts that refused to admit students to the bathrooms, locker rooms, dormitories and athletic teams of their choice.
 
“I have been and remain committed to defending our schools’ authority over their own policies,” Attorney General Morrisey wrote. “The Trump letter removes any threat of federal government action against States and schools that choose to maintain their lawful policy preference of declining to admit students to sex-segregated facilities on the basis of their professed gender identity.”
