Administrators at a Long Island high school forced a student to sign a contract barring her from changing her gender identity because she had switched it twice already, sources told The Post.
Born a girl, the current Valley Stream South HS student, who asked to remain anonymous, said she first asked the school to recognize her as a male with a new name as a sophomore last year.
Formally regarded as a boy last year, the student said her teachers and classmates accepted her new identity and made her feel comfortable.
She was addressed by her new male name in class and changed in a nurse’s office to avoid any bathroom conflicts.
But the student decided to revert back to being a female before the beginning of this school year because a younger relative who didn’t know about her change was set to enter the school.
