The ACLU says a Mississippi school district will require students to wear caps and gowns in senior pictures after a lesbian student was left out of the yearbook for wearing a tuxedo.
The Copiah County School District's decision was part of an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union. The group sued in 2010, claiming discrimination against Ceara Sturgis.
The ACLU said Wednesday that the agreement also calls for a picture of Sturgis in the tuxedo to be added to her class' picture hanging in the school library.
Sturgis says in a statement she's thrilled to have her photo among her classmates.
A message left for the Copiah County Superintendent of Education wasn't immediately returned.
