Establishes provisions relating to physical privacy of children
In every public school setting in which a minor may be in a state of undress in the presence of other people, school personnel shall provide separate, distinct areas designated for use by minors based on their biological sex to ensure the personal privacy and safety of minors
Every public school shower room, locker room, and restroom designated for use by minors and which is accessible by multiple individuals at the same time shall be designated for and used only by minors of the same biological sex. At no time shall a minor be allowed to access a public school shower room, locker room, or restroom designated for use by the opposite biological sex.
A minor who asserts to school officials that his or her gender is different from his or her biological sex may be provided with alternative shower room, locker room, or restroom accommodations, provided that a parent or legal guardian of a minor who makes such assertion shall provide written consent to use of such alternative accommodations. Such accommodations shall not include the use of shower rooms, locker rooms, or restrooms designated for use by minors of the opposite biological sex.
