FLORENCE  The Christian Broadcast Network on Sunday published a story alleging "the push for radical transgender rights in schools is trumping privacy rights" at Florence High School.

The article claims a male student at the school, who claims to be transgender, has been "harassing girls in the bathroom" and that after parents complained, school officials said, "the boy's rights as a transgender trumped their daughters' privacy rights."

Florence-Penrose School District Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti said the district was advised by lawyers not to comment about the specifics of the case because it is under investigation by law enforcement. However, she did release a comment Tuesday to the Cañon City Daily Record.

"We are committed to providing a fair and equal education to all students at Florence High School," she said.
