CHARLOTTE, NC (WJZY) - On Monday Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools laid out the policies in how gender identity should be handled in CMS.
In the fall students will have access to the bathroom and locker rooms that correspond with their identities.
Employees will go through training on how to enforce the rules. School records can be changed to match student's gender identity with the proper documents.
Governor McCrory’s office issued a statement from Press Secretary Graham Wilson Tuesday regarding the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System’s policy:
“Instead of providing reasonable accommodations for some students facing unique circumstances, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System made a radical change to their shower, locker room and restroom policy for all students,” said Graham Wilson, Press Secretary for Governor Pat McCrory. “This curiously-timed announcement that changes the basic expectations of privacy for students comes just after school let out and defies transparency, especially for parents. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System should have waited for the courts to make a decision instead of purposely breaking state law.”
