A motion to begin drafting a transgender bathroom policy at Peoria Unified schools failed on a 2-3 vote.

Opponents say transgender students should not be banned from the bathrooms or locker rooms of their choice.

Ultimately, Peoria Unified voted against drafting a policy, meaning nothing will change for now.
