FLORENCE, Colo. (AP) -- The Florence-Penrose School District is reviewing a draft policy on privacy from attorneys who represent families concerned about their teenage daughters sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with a transgender female student at Florence High School.

The authors say the policy seeks to reconcile assertions of gender identity with constitutional privacy rights. The school district is refusing to release a copy of the draft report.

According to the Canon City Daily Record, several Colorado high school girls are alleging harassment because a transgender student is using the girl's bathroom.

The complaints allege that the student is a biological boy using a girl's bathroom in violation of the rights of other students.
