A transgender student was granted access to an Illinois public school’s female locker room Friday after reaching an agreement with the school. The agreement with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights states that “Student A” will change behind curtains installed by the district in the girls’ locker room. The school has since upgraded to stalls for increased privacy for students. The Department of Education clarified in a letter that the agreement provisions regarding access to the girls’ locker room apply only to “Student A.”

Township High School District 211 Community Relations Director Thomas Petersen confirmed to The Daily Signal via email that the school has complied. The resolution was reached after the Department of Education launched an investigation into a civil rights complaint by the transgender student’s family. The school was found in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 for discriminating “against a transgender high school student on the basis of sex” by denying the student access to the girls’ locker room and instead offering “only separate facilities to change clothes.” FULL REPORT
