Trans sports law has Lafourche school board member pondering coed sports | #schoolsaftey

A school board member wants the transgender law banning men from competing in women’s sports placed in the school policy but is open to coed sports.

In June of 2022, Louisiana legislators passed a law defining athletes’ sex based on their birth certificates and barring those assigned as males from competing in women’s sports held by schools that receive state funds. It does not address women who are transitioning into males.

According to superintendents from both Terrebonne and Lafourche school districts, the districts are enforcing the law. No athletes currently are competing in sports opposite to the sex on their birth certificates, they said.

Lafourche School Board Member Jamie Marlbrough wants this law printed in the school district’s policy but is also open to creating coed sports. She said men have an advantage over women in sports, but she also would like a space that is inclusive for trans athletes. She said her concern was women getting injured by male athletes competing against them.
