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.

Telephone threat closes UT-Arlington campus
June 19, 2013 13:38 GMT
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- A telephoned threat about a gunman heading to the University of Texas at Arlington has led to the campus being closed and classes canceled as a precaution.
UTA spokeswoman Kristin Sullivan says police are investigating the unconfirmed threat and there was no active incident on campus Wednesday.
Sullivan says a woman called UTA police to say a man with a gun was traveling to the school. Sullivan says no such person has been spotted on campus and police sought the man at another location.
A UTA emergency alert shortly after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday said the campus was closed. Classes and other events were canceled.
Sullivan says several thousand people typically would be on campus for summer classes, camps and other activities. UTA's spring enrollment was nearly 34,000 students.
