Ethan Stucker started this petition to Spirit Lake High School

On November 29, 202, school officials at Spirit Lake High School in Iowa told a student that he was not allowed to use the public school restrooms due to his gender identity due to “the safety of other students.” The student in question has no criminal or school disciplinary history. School officials have admitted that they have no reasonable cause to believe that this student would cause harm to others in the bathroom.

Furthermore, the decision made by Spirit Lake High School is in violation of Title IX, the 2007 Iowa Civil Rights Act, and the Iowa Department of Education’s guidelines. 


As of right now there are local attorneys as well as attorneys working on the case as well as at the One Iowa organization; however, we are not looking for money or a lawsuit at this moment. The only goal is providing a safe environment for trans and gender-nonconforming students at SLHS.
