ACLU: CCSD Didn't Protect Bullied Students | News
LAS VEGAS -- The American Civil Liberties Union filed discrimination complaints Wednesday against the Clark County School District claiming the district failed to take appropriate action to protect two harassed students at Greenspun Junior High School.
The complaints were filed with the Nevada Equal Rights Commission. The Nevada chapter of the ACLU claims two boys were bullied by other students for their perceived sexual orientation. According to the complaint, school officials did not take any action, even after one of the boy's parents contacted the school.
Amanda Fulkerson, Chief Communications Officer for CCSD, said district officials had not seen the complaint yet. She issued the following statement:
"Student safety is the top priority of the District. We will review this issue and will work with the students, parents and administrators to investigate what happened on the campus that led to the lawsuit."
