Transgender students in California public schools can continue to use facilities for the gender they identify with. That’s even after the Trump Administration withdrew federal guidelines Wednesday.
Bill Ainsworth of the California Department of Education says the change does not affect California public schools.
"We have a state law requiring access to bathrooms and locker rooms for those students in accordance with their gender identity," says Ainsworth.
California passed that law in 2013, which the Department of Education says was the first in the nation.
