California high school unveils plans for ‘all gender’ bathroom and locker room

Long Beach Unified School District has approved several revitalization projects, including a new aquatic center and an ‘all-gender’ locker room at Wilson High School in Long Beach, CA.  Funding for the project comes largely through the Measure E bond program.

An email from the school’s Assistant Principal, Guillermo Jimenez went out this week announcing a virtual community meeting that will discuss details on the locker room’s safety and privacy features. The email reads:

“Parents and guardians are invited to join a virtual community meeting onTuesday, November 30 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the new aquatic center and inclusive locker room coming to Wilson High School fall 2023. Construction will begin next summer.

The Long Beach Unified School District’s inclusive facilities are spaces that serve students with disabilities, students of all gender identities and expressions, and students who desire privacy for any number of reasons. Wilson’s new aquatic center will feature an inclusive, all-gender locker room.

LBUSD’s Facilities staff will share information on the new aquatic center, including details on the locker room’s safety and privacy features. To join the meeting on November 30, please visit the District’s YouTube channel at LBSchools.net/YouTube or click here.

Parents will have an opportunity to ask questions during the meeting. If you’d like to submit questions in advance of the meeting, please email schoolbonds@lbschools.net.
