On Monday, the Supreme Court announced it won't hear a case over whether schools must allow students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identities. 

The case centered around Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy in Virginia. 

The school board barred him from using the boys bathroom. Grimm sued and won in 2015, and again a few years later. 

Because the high court declined to hear the case, Grimm's earlier victory will stand.
