Report: Hanover High Resolves Civil Rights Claim With U.S. Department of Education
The Broadside, the student newspaper at Hanover High School, reports that the Dresden School District resolved a civil rights claim with U.S. Department of Education in December 2017.
The article School Resolves Civil Rights Case by Caleb Benjamin was published on September 18 on the Broadside website, says in part:
The complaint brought against the school was filed by a parent of a former Hanover High School Student who graduated in 2016. The complaint was filed with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights(OCR). Complaint number’s 01-15-1244 and 01-16-1123 allege that the school and district discriminated against the student as a result of his disability and retaliated against him when he brought these issues to light. When asked about whether or not the student was retaliated against, Principal Campbell said “I can state strongly there was no retaliation,” and also added, “we absolutely don’t discriminate.”
