The Supreme Court on Monday declined to take up a challenge by Oregon parents to public school policies allowing transgender students to use bathrooms that match their gender identity.

By declining to hear the case, the justices preserved a federal appeals court’s decision to permit transgender students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms associated with their gender identity instead of their sex assigned at birth.

A lower court initially refused to strike down the school district’s policy, prompting the parents to appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirmed the lower court ruling.
