GRAYSON COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Grayson County School Board has approved an ordinance requiring students to use bathrooms that correspond with the gender on their birth certificate.

The move comes after President Obama told public schools that transgender students should be allowed to use bathrooms that match their gender identity.

Federal officials said the schools that refuse to comply, could be hit with a lawsuit and cutoff from federal funding.
