Idaho high school students will begin class Monday with a new policy that makes them all-boys for the first time.
The Idaho Falls Tribune reported the policy change at Idaho Falls High School, which has about 3,200 students and is one of Idaho’s oldest public high schools.
The policy change came in 2016, when Idaho lawmakers passed a law allowing students to use the boys locker room at school.
The new policy makes it official for the new students, which will start classes Monday at the school.
They will be able to use girls’ restrooms, locker rooms and changing facilities, and use a separate restroom for the boys.
They will be required to wear a shirt and tie.
They can wear uniforms with an open collar and be dressed in their school’s colors.
The school will no longer allow student athletes to wear skirts or dresses.
The change is one step forward for Idaho high schools, which were recently ranked second in the nation for high school sports.
Last year, the Idaho Supreme Court upheld the use of the boys restroom at Idaho high.
The ruling, which was written by a three-member panel, said school administrators had an obligation to make the change.
