12. Does a student have a legal right in Washington State to use the bathroom that conforms to their gender identity?
 
  To date, there has not been a case on this issue in Washington. Courts in California have found that their anti-discrimination law covered bathroom access. In the K-12 setting, OSPI has issued guidelines that school districts should allow a student to use the restroom that is consistent with the studentís gender identity. The second option is that if a student, transgender or not - who has a need or desire for increased privacy, regardless of the underlying reason, should be provided access to an alternative restroom (e.g., staff restroom, health office restroom), but no should be required to use an alternative restroom because they are transgender or gender nonconforming.  
a. More likely than not. YES!
