The largest school district in the state moves forward with trying to implement a transgender policy for its students.
In a meeting Monday night, board members heard from 26 people, most of whom were against OPS creating a policy for transgender students using bathrooms and locker rooms.
Those against the policy said it goes against their religious beliefs or this would create more sexual assaults.
A few people in support of it said it's time the school district to reflect on the needs of all students.
This comes after a Department of Justice order for public schools to accommodate transgender students in bathroooms.
The board decided to start creating a policy.
