AN FRANCISCO With a law that spells out the rights of transgender students in grades K-12 set to take effect in California, school districts are reviewing locker room layouts, scheduling sensitivity training for coaches, assessing who will sleep where during overnight field trips and reconsidering senior portrait dress codes.
But administrators, counselors, teachers and school board members also are watching and waiting. The law, the nation's first requiring public schools to let children use sex-segregated facilities and participate in the gender-specific activities of their choice, could end up suspended within days of its Jan. 1 launch if a referendum to repeal it qualifies for the November ballot.
To obtain a public vote on the law, passed by the legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, a coalition of conservative groups called Privacy for All Students has collected hundreds of thousands of signatures. Counties have until Jan. 8 to verify them through random spot-checking.
Depending on how many are found to be valid, the secretary of state will approve the referendum, determine that it failed or order a review of every signature.
"We don't know what's going to happen when kids come back from their holiday vacation," said Republican state Sen. Steve Knight, who voted against the law. "Are there going to be 15-year-old girls talking in the bathroom and in walks a boy? What are they going to do? Scream? Run out?"

I’m sick to death of the freaks & deviants who run this state.
Working out who’s who in the locker rooms and sleep overs? I’ll say it, at this point, what difference does it make???
Note to parents....grab your kids and run. They’re better off uneducated than corrupted by these people. Trust me, in a couple of hours a day, you could be a better job, without all of the garbage. Your child’s soul is more important.
“reconsidering senior portrait dress codes”
Thank God for Photoshop
Why bother with the referendum? It’ll cost a ton of $, then when it passes overwhelmingly, a single judge will overturn the public vote.
Its time for the good people to take back our country from the pervs. Can we file many lawsuits in many places and tie this crap up in court?
Democracy in America is dead. I don't see why we even bother with elections anymore.
Probably not. California courts are as corrupt as any in the land.
“I don’t see why we even bother with elections anymore.”
We won’t for long
Apparently the voters in California didn’t believe that electing deviants to office would have any negative consequences. Dolts!
Neither do the voters nationwide, apparently. Dolts, all.
I hope the 15 year old girls in the bathroom when a boy walks in KICK HIS ASS!
Their “holiday “ vacation? What “holiday would that be? Hanukkah that ended 3 weeks ago? that muslim holiday that did not even take place in December this year? Maybe its extended July 4th?
Queers, freaks and perverts .... I think the unsure fall into the second category.
Has already happened and the girls were cited for a hate crime. I’ll look for a link.
It don’t get any dumber than this.
In my day we would have kicked their ass.
When they run they'll vote the same expecting a different result.
Any shcool that follows this should be closed
The judge can order it, let him enforce it
What a waste of everyone’s time. Total BS and completely unnecessary.
