Parents alerted The Iowa Standard to the following poster being in Waukee Northwest High School bathrooms.

The poster asks if the individual feels like someone is “using the wrong bathroom.” And, if so, it goes over things to not do and things to do:


Please don’t
*Stare at them
*Challenge them
*Insult them
*Do not purposefully make them uncomfortable

Please do
*Respect their privacy
*Respect their identity
*Carry on with your day
*Protect them from harm

“They are using the facilities they feel safe in,” the poster says. “DO NOT take this right away from them.”

The Iowa Standard contacted the school principal, Fairouz Bishara-Rantisi, asking if the school and/or district approved the posters and whether they would remain up or be removed.
