Transgender student asks school board for ballot change

By: Kerri Corrado


I am officially on court, but on court as a female, transgender student from Richland High School Kasey Caron said.

Kasey was voted on to the homecoming court, but wants to be on the king ballot and has been attending school board meetings ever since the school district will not allow that.

The board presented Kaseys mother Kathy Caron this letter about the homecoming decision.

The letter read, With regard to the issue of the placement on the ballot of the relative to the homecoming court, the board determined that no forma action was required of it due to the board agreeing with the previous decisions of the administration regarding this matter.

It was disappointing, my heart sunk a little, Kasey said.

Kaseys driver license was switched from female to male, but Kasey says the school board said the birth certificate didnt list male and there has been no sex change surgery.

But Kasey is backed by friends and family.

I love my son and my son is the most awesome. I couldnt ask for anything better, Kathy Caron said.
