Principal & staffers of Broward high school removed over transgender student athlete

Broward County Public Schools announced Monday that the school district removed the principal of Monarch High School and four other staff members due to “allegations of improper student participation in sports.”

The initial announcement came with no explanation about what sport or sports were included in the investigation, nor did it detail what triggered the investigation or reassignments. But on Tuesday morning, district officials confirmed to the Miami Herald the reassignments occurred because a trans student had been playing volleyball at the high school. State law prohibits transgender female students from playing on women’s and girls’ sports teams.

Moira Sweeting-Miller, the school’s assistant principal, will serve as interim principal while the school district’s Special Investigative Unit investigate the five employees.
