The organization overseeing high school sports competition in Nebraska says its wants its members to decide whether to adopt a transgender policy.
The Nebraska School Activities Association board of directors met Wednesday and said it doesn't have a policy in place. It will instead allow members to make the decision.
The association created confusion when it posted an item on its website about a policy on transgender students participating in high school sports. Board members insisted they had not voted on a policy.
Implementation of a policy will involve at least several districts voting on legislation ahead of the general assembly meeting in April.
NSAA Executive Director Rhonda Blanford-Green says the announcement Wednesday is the best and most open way to draft a policy. The earliest a policy change could take place would be the 2014-2015 school year.
