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.

Dallas woman indicted, college financial aid scam
May 22, 2013 17:12 GMT
DALLAS (AP) -- A North Texas woman has been charged with scamming six schools by getting thousands of dollars in financial aid and not completing any online courses.
Prosecutors in Dallas on Wednesday announced 30-year-old Sussette Sheree Timmons has been indicted on six counts of financial institution fraud.
Timmons received financial aid from New Mexico State University, Western New Mexico University, Ashford University, Northern New Mexico College, Coconino Community College and Pima Community College.
Timmons enrolled for distance learning programs via the Internet and some financial aid was applied to her tuition and fees. Prosecutors say she also received some disbursement checks but never used the money for her education.
Prosecutors say Timmons, who was indicted Tuesday, has withdrawn from 13 colleges or universities since 2009.
She remains at large.
