(AP) A western Pennsylvania school board won't let a student who was born female but identifies as male run for homecoming king.


The Richland School Board didn't rule on Kasey Caron's request Monday night, but simply let stand an earlier decision by school administrators which leaves the 17-year-old senior on the ballot for homecoming queen.


Kasey's mother, Kathy Caron, says she's disappointed by the decision. Kasey says, "My heart sunk a little."


School board solicitor Timothy Leventry says Pennsylvania law requires a person born female to have a physician certify a sex change operation and have their birth certificate changed to legally be considered male.


Kasey was diagnosed at a young age with polycystic ovary syndrome. Among other things, it can cause biological females to produce higher-than-normal levels of male hormones.
