School Official Who Allegedly Told Transgender Teen ‘You Freak Me out’ Faces Penalty

A West Virginia assistant principal who allegedly told a transgender teen to “prove” [she] was a boy in a bathroom faces suspension.

A school board will meet today to consider whether Liberty High School Assistant Principal Lee Livengood will be suspended indefinitely without pay, according to the Associated Press.

The incident occurred Nov. 27. Livengood was suspended with pay last month from the Clarksburg school. The suspension ran through the end of the semester, when the holiday break began, AP reported. . .

The Charleston Gazette-Mail said Michael went to the restroom before going on a band trip and that other students heard Livengood shouting and notified a trip chaperone.

“A chaperone found out he had me barricaded in the bathroom. By the time she came, I was breaking down and had quivering lips. She kept asking me what was wrong and I just kept pushing it off, because she wouldn’t be able to understand with me crying or it just wouldn’t come out right.”
