Eureka City Schools was reviewed for a mandated assessment by its Board of Education, as part of a discrimination lawsuit settlement agreement, which includes “a review of district data, policies and practices, professional development, complaint process, site visits and interviews.”
The lawsuit, filed in December 2013 by the National Center for Youth Law and the American Civil Liberties Union, said that district employees discriminated against students based on race, sex, and disability status, perpetuated a hostile environment based on race, and the district did not provide adequate access to educational services for students with disabilities.Tags: Disability Rights, Education, Minorities: Other/All, Schools: Special Education
