transgender students. administrators in northeast nebraska schools are trying to balance fairness for... a system that would protect them legally... and that seems to be presenting a challenge. lukas voss has more on this story. natpop - basketball. vo: after years of consideration ... nebraska has outlined it's own guidelines on how to deal with transgender students involved in school athletics. a commitee, which will include doctors and psychiatrists will evaluate the petitioning student ... and then make a decision ... all in an effort to create equality. sot: norfolk public schools superintendent jami jo thompson says, "we are trying to balance the rights of the transgender students to participate in activities as well as what's best for the respect and dignity of students." however ... now that rule could be thrown out in favor of a regulation that could mean participation is based on the birth certficate. essentially leaving only a very slim chance for transgender students to participate in the opposite sex's sport. sot: "right at this point we have no way for them to be eligible. it's always been our policy or practice i should say that whatever is on your
that's what you perform as." sot/standup: "four of the nsaa's six districts voted to base participation on the birth certificate. that means the proposal will go to the nsaa general assembly in april where it needs a two thirds vote to be in affect by fall." what superintendents are really worried with, is no matter what they decide ... there is a great posiblity for lawsuits. "if we were to get involved in a lawsuit or the office of civil rights would come in we could lose millions of dollars." "we are foolish if we are not taking that into consideration when we deal with this because there is going to be remification in any decision we make." students and administrators will have to wait until april to see what ruling will prevail ... if the birth certificate rule will apply, nebraska would be the only state with such a highly restrictive policy ... reporting from battle creek, nebraska ... lukas voss abc9 news. jenna: a familiar face in
