The Great Falls public school system is drawing criticism for updating its board policy regarding non-discrimination to include transgender students.

The school district adopted the policy in January after getting public comment.

Superintendent Tammy Lacey says members of the public didn't appear to have any issues with the change until a crowd showed up last month at a school board meeting to voice displeasure.

According to the Great Falls Tribune, parents are worried that the policy change will allow for students of the opposite sex to enter each other's bathrooms or locker rooms.

Lacey says there is no language in the new policy about bathrooms or locker rooms.
