Allen High School in Broward County, Florida, fired a teacher who took photos of the naked body parts of a trans student, the school announced Tuesday.
The Broward Independent School District said it received a complaint from the Broward Sheriff’s Office about photos of a student who was at Allen on Oct. 17.
The photos were taken at a private residence where students were allowed to attend and were posted on Instagram, according to the district.
The teacher who uploaded the photos has been terminated and disciplinary action will be taken, according the district’s announcement.
The school district’s decision came just weeks after a local lawmaker expressed concern about the incident.
The incident comes amid a national debate over the use of transgender bathroom access, with transgender rights groups, business owners and politicians in a number of states, including South Carolina, California and Mississippi, all enacting legislation requiring students to use restrooms that match their gender identity.
