TROY, Ohio (AP) - A group of parents have voiced their displeasure with a western Ohio school district’s decision to grant access to the men’s restroom for a transgender student.

Troy City Schools Superintendent Eric Herman announced Monday that the district will fall in compliance with the law and allow the student to use the men’s room.

The district notified parents Friday that denying the student’s request would be prohibited under Title IX.

Herman says restrooms are available in every district building for those who would rather not use a shared bathroom.

Parent Bryan Kemper told The Dayton Daily News he was “outraged” by the district’s message and a meeting will be held for concerned parents Tuesday at Koinos Christian Church in Troy.

Ohio School Boards Association officials say they’ve recently received more gender identity questions from districts.
