ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska board of education has unanimously approved a resolution that urges the state to limit the participation of transgender girls in girls school sports. The Anchorage Daily News reports the resolution passed Thursday urges the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development to create two sports divisions, one for athletes whose sex assigned at birth is female and the other for students of all genders. The resolution was added to the board’s agenda Thursday at the end of a three-day meeting in Juneau. It had unanimous support from the eight members.
