Janizia Ross told The Associated Press on Thursday that she and the other student have been informed they can go to the prom at Alexandria High School.
The 17-year-old Ross finished serving an in-school suspension earlier this month that was punishment for coming on stage during a school talent show and asking a female student to go to prom.
School officials in the east Alabama system deny the punishment violated what they describe as a commitment to equality.
Lambda Legal, which advocates for same-sex rights, had complained about the punishment. The organization says it's happy the girls are being allowed to attend prom.
