Two Michigan parents are suing the Rockford Public School District for using male pronouns and a male name for their daughter without informing them.

The school allegedly concealed this information by changing the girl’s school records.

The parents, represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), argue that the district’s actions violated their parental rights and religious beliefs. (Trending: Prominent LGBTQ Activist Arrested Over Disturbing Charges)

Vincent Wagner, an attorney for the parents, said, “No one with the school district told them that the school district had begun to treat her as a boy by calling her a masculine name and by male pronouns.”

“They weren’t able to help her in a difficult time in her life,” Wagner continued.

“So it prevented them from helping her and that denied them their constitutional rights,” he added. “Schools shouldn’t keep information like that from parents.”

“Parents, not the government, have the right to direct the upbringing, education, and health care of their children,” ADF Senior Counsel Kate Anderson said.

“Schools should never deliberately hide vital information from parents, yet that’s exactly what the Rockford Public School District did,” she continued.

The lawsuit, which identifies the girl as G.M., reads: “As directed by the District’s policy, District employees — employees the Meads had trusted with sensitive information about G.M.’s mental health — deliberately changed G.M.’s school records to conceal the fact that the District was treating their daughter as a boy without their knowledge.”

“The Meads only discovered it because one employee forgot to remove the masculine name and male pronouns from one section of G.M.’s records, after removing it from other sections of the same document, and inadvertently gave the Meads the document she had only partially altered,” continued the filing.

“Yet, even after this revelation, the employee went back and further altered the District’s only copy of this document to remove reference to the masculine name and male pronouns the District was using for G.M.,” the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit also claims that the district engaged in “social transition” without the parents’ consent.

The lawsuit states that G.M.’s parents are Christians and that the “District’s actions violated the Meads’ sincerely held religious beliefs and their parental rights.”

“When referring to G.M. by a masculine name and male pronouns, Defendants engaged in so-called ‘social transition’ which is a psychotherapeutic intervention for gender dysphoria that scientific evidence demonstrates has a powerful psychological effect on development and the outcomes of a child,” explained the lawsuit.

“By socially transitioning G.M. without notifying the Meads or seeking their consent, Defendants denied the Meads their fundamental right to direct their daughter’s healthcare related to the important topic of gender confusion or gender dysphoria,” the lawsuit said.

The district’s superintendent stated that they are reviewing the documents and have no further comment at this time.

Rockford Public School District Superintendent Steven Matthews said, “[W]e have not read through them completely.”

“We respect the privacy of this family and as such have no comment at this time,” he continued. “Our staff continue to support all students and their families as we work together to help our students learn and grow.”
