A student-led effort has created change at Vashon Island High School.

When students return to school next week, they'll find new, all-gender restrooms.

Members of the school's "Queer Spectrum Alliance" asked the school board for the change last year and even helped research funding for the transition.

The district approved converting a complete set of men's and women's bathrooms into all-gender restrooms.

Vashon's principal says this is the safest and clearest way to protect transgender students.
