Trans students of Grosse Pointe North started this petition to Kate Murray
Problem
There are many trans students at Grosse Pointe North who feel extremely uncomfortable using the restroom at school because they are forced into a bathroom that doesn't correspond with their genders. I recently talked to a few trans students at the school, and many agree that the system they have in place for trans students just doesn't work, some saying that they actively avoid using the restroom and have gotten UTIs because of this. At the Grosse Pointe North, if you are transgender, you have to talk to a school counsellor about your discomfort in the bathroom in order to be added to a list of a few students that can use a men's staff restroom in the counselling center (located on the first floor). This however is not an effective solution. This means that trans students have to spend more time out of class to get to the bathroom (which takes away from their education). Not only is this bathroom for trans students, but also male staff, so if you're a trans student, you also have to worry about walking in on a teacher, as they do forget to lock the door sometimes. Not only that but every time you need to pee you need to tell the secretary in the counselling center, and she often forgets which students are allowed in so it becomes a big thing and it ends up being 15 minutes out of class to just simply use the restroom.

Solution
The first floor has 2 male staff bathrooms, one in the main hall and one in the counselling center, by simply making the one in the main hall gender neutral (as well as making it a non staff bathroom) instead of the one in the counselling center, trans students would be much more comfortable in the restroom. And if you are worried about people going in there for the wrong reasons, just have the hall monitors stand on that side of the hall instead so there isn't more than one person in there at a time. Or alternatively, make the ones in the choir hall (which are already single toilet) gender neutral and get a stall put in around the urinal as well at the toilet in the men's room.
