Oconomowoc Superintendent Roger Rindo agrees his decision to provide a unisex bathroom at Summit Elementary is uncharted waters for the district, but also a decision that is fair and legal.

"By providing a unisex bathroom that not just transgender children, but all children can use, provides a facility that is open and available to all children," he says.

Last Friday the district received calls from concerned parents at Summit Elementary after a transgender 6-year-old used the girls' bathroom while another child was using it. Rindo believes creating a bathroom that all children can use will decrease transgender children feeling singled out by having a bathroom just for them.
