A new policy that provides a pathway for transgender high school student-athletes in the state to participate in interscholastic sports teams gained final approval Thursday from the general membership of the Maine Principals’ Association. The Transgender Participation Policy becomes effective immediately, according to MPA executive director Dick Durost, and is designed to allow student-athletes to participate in sports in accordance with their gender identity while seeking to maintain competitive equity among all participants and all teams.
