BPSB to Join State Lawsuit Against U.S. Department of Education

Tonight the Bossier Parish School Board unanimously passed a resolution to join the State of
Louisiana in litigation against the U.S. Department of Education, challenging changes in Title
IX regulations that are seen as the equivalent of federal overreach.

The new Title IX rules would require schools receiving federal funding to allow biological
males who identify as females to receive access to women and girls’ restrooms and locker
rooms. Furthermore, the new rules would force educators to reference students by names and
pronouns not consistent with their biological sex.

Not only is it the position of the Bossier Parish School Board that these regulations are
contradictory to both state and federal law and the original intent of Title IX, but they also do
not reflect the community standards upheld in Bossier Parish.

In solidarity with the Louisiana Department of Education, the Louisiana Attorney General’s
Office and Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry, it will remain Bossier Schools’ position and
practice not to alter policies or procedures until this issue makes its way through the courts.
