NEW HOLLAND, Penn. (Fox 32) – The Eastern Lancaster County School District voted Monday to initiate an ambitious renovation plan to create non-gender specific facilities at its high school in place of traditional gender-specific locker rooms.
Board members unanimously passed policy 253 on Monday night, the first student day of the 2019-2020 school year.
The $2.4 million renovation plan for Garden Spot High School includes the design of four “zones” that will hold a total of 48 private changing rooms and 76 private showers, Lancaster Online reported. Because each of the showers will be private, they can also double as changing rooms, making a total of 124 changing rooms under the new plan.
The Bible teaches in Genesis 5:1-2, “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”
Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-5, “…Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”
