SAN FRANCISCO With a law that spells out the rights of transgender students in grades K to 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 nations 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 dont know whats 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?
The California School Boards Association is acting on the assumption that the law will stand and that, even if it does not, existing state and federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as year-old California Interscholastic Federation rules under which athletes may petition to play on a sports team that does not correspond with their biological sex, already compel schools to accommodate transgender students.

The solution would be to add more private education where the administration of the schools is CONSERVATVE!
Government schools worry about everything but actually teaching. They breed an underclass ready for government dependence.
I wonder how many hundreds of millions of dollars they don’t have will be spent by the state of California in their efforts to ‘accommodate’ 0.001% of the population.
Just how many transgendered students are there? One in a million? We never had any in the schools I attended. It looks like the California government is encouraging more of them to appear.
Teen boys, declaring themselves “male lesbians”, in the girls’ locker rooms! What could possibly go wrong?
This subject is soooooooo sick I cannot bring myself to conjure up words to comment on it other than “I hate liberalism!”
At a typical sensitivity training class....... "No more call boys Sissy Mary's if they do not preform in class". Coach's question "can I call both boys, girls and Yet To Be Determined's Sissy Mary's if they fail to preform?" Trainer........."let me get back to you on that one".
Eventually it will be acceptable for a boy to kiss another’s ........as long as teacher can get in his licks.
America already has a sodomy aficionado ensconced in the White Hut with his Wookie and their rented family.
Ephesians 6:12 - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Not my words...HIS holy word.
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?
Sex wanted or not.
Senior portrait dress code? Dress em all in cap & gown; that’s what we wore...
It doesn't matter, even if its defeated in a referendum some progressive /activist judge will strike the proposition down and the homosexual activists will score another win.
The slouch towards Gomorrah will continue.
That is a blatant example of leftist welfare-ward "schooling" reaching its mature conclusion. Beware -- it is spreading!
From what I understand, this also affects sports. Swimming time not good enough to qualify for state as a boy? Too short to be a guard on the Water Polo team or Basketball team? Not fast enough for the soccer or track team? Identify as female and take a place on the team from a girl!
Just wait until that happens.
Prepping little leftards for their future “Jaywalking” debut and becoming Youtube sensations.
If I had a daughter, she’d be a black belt in her choice of martial arts and more than able to defend herself against this type of intolerable situation.
