The Clyde CISD school board voted Monday evening to change the wording in it's student handbook.

The updated policy no longer separates girls and boys.

All students will now follow the same policies.

Trevor Wilkinson -- an openly gay student at Clyde High School -- was placed on in-school suspension on Nov. 30 because he showed up to school wearing fingernail polish.

The school district's student handbook said male students are prohibited from wearing make-up and nail polish.

"It is with great honor that I am pleased to announce that Clyde High School’s dress code is officially gender neutral forever," Wilkinson told KTXS.

"I’m at a loss of words for the joy I am feeling on this special day. I am so blessed by the support, love, and help I have received through this experience."
