CANDIA — Candia School District is changing their bathroom policy to accommodate transgender students, a topic that has been recently discussed amongst many New Hampshire school districts.
According to Fox25, the school district only has one building, which houses about 330 students from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Students will now be able to choose the restroom or locker room they feel most comfortable in based on their own gender identity.
While many agree with this decision, some parents do not.
"We’re not in opposition to a privacy that encompasses all children, but we are in opposition of a policy that is specific to just the transgender student it infringes on the privacy of the masses," Angie Syvertson, a parent, said.
The school will also have private facilities for students who would prefer that.
Several other school districts including Hooksett, Concord and Durham are also discussing transgender policies.
