Boyertown School District Sued Over Locker Room Policy


PHILADELPHIA – A Boyertown Area High School student and his parents have sued the school district for intentionally violating his right to bodily privacy after he was exposed involuntarily to an undressed student of the opposite sex while changing in his school’s locker room. Without any notice to students or parents, the school district secretly opened its schools’ sex-specific restrooms and locker rooms to students of the opposite sex. The male student brought a complaint to school officials, who told him that they now allow students who identify themselves as the opposite sex to choose whichever locker room they wish to use. The male student asked officials to protect his privacy, but they instead told him twice that he must “tolerate” it and make changing with students of the opposite sex as “natural” as he can. Independence Law Center Chief Counsel Randall Wenger is representing the student and his family. The lawsuit claims sexual harassment under Title IX, a federal law; violation of the fundamental right to bodily privacy under the U.S. Constitution; and violation of a state privacy law.
