This time it’s the Arcadia (California) Unified School District — in exchange for the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights suspension of their investigation, the school district agrees to allow a trans student use of the restroom and locker room they identifies with.

The unidentified student was denied use of boy’s restroom and lockers for two years and at a school camp, the student was required to stay in a cabin away from his classmates.

The district also agrees to hire a consultant, amend their policies and retrain employees to ensure future trans discrimination does not occur.

This agreement comes on the heels of a ruling in Colorado that found barring a trans child from using the restroom they identify with as discriminatory:
