A Northside I.S.D. student who refused to wear an ID badge with a tracking device can now be transferred to another school.
Today, a federal judge ruled in the district's favor.
The student filed a lawsuit and refused to wear the ID badge for religious reasons.
She called the tracking device "The mark of the beast."
District Officials say they offered the student an ID badge without a tracking chip, but she refused to wear it.
The District had planned to transfer her from John Jay's magnet program back to her home school, but the student's family asked a judge to intervene.
The judge denied the family's request and said the district can transfer her for refusing to wear the device.

Study: Poverty in Austin suburbs rises sharply
May 20, 2013 16:06 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A new publication reveals the Austin metro area over the course of a decade saw the nation's second-fastest increase in the number of poor people living in the suburbs.
The findings by the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. is part of a book being released Monday that argues poverty is shifting from inner cities to America's suburbs.
The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/11RHhuP ) that from 2000 to 2011, the suburban poor population grew 143 percent in the Austin metro area. Only Atlanta saw faster growth in the number of poor living in the suburbs. The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro area placed 12th overall and Houston 15th.
As a whole, the nation's suburban poor population surged 64 percent since 2000, twice the rate of the urban poor population.
