Highland files motion to block disruption of federal funding while transgender case presses on

Staff report

Highland Local School District asked a federal court in a motion filed Friday to stop the U.S. departments of Education and Justice from pulling federal funding for special needs and underprivileged children while the district’s lawsuit against those agencies moves forward, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom, Highland’s representation in the case.

The two departments are making the funding dependent on the district opening up overnight accommodations, locker rooms, showers and restrooms to be shared by members of both sexes.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the Board of Education of the Highland Local School District filed suit against the two federal agencies last month.
