Knox Co. School Board approves policy that restricts transgender students’ rights per new TN laws, critics say

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Knox County School Board approved two policies on second readings, which critics say those policies restrict transgender students’ rights.

The first policy does not allow students to use a “multi-occupancy restroom or changing facility” aligning to their gender identity.

The policy said the school principal can provide a “reasonable accommodation” to students who ask for it, including access to a single-person restroom or changing facility.
