Lubbock Cooper School District Lawsuit
The Lubbock Cooper Independent School District sued two parents on Thursday and those same two parents sued the LCISD on Friday.
Court records said Sherri and Christopher Dennis requested a due process hearing with the Texas Education Agency this year after a dispute with LCISD. The Dennis family have a student enrolled in high school who suffers disabilities, according to their lawsuit. The family’s lawsuit claims that LCISD failed to make appropriate accommodations for the student’s disability.
State regulators sided with the Dennis family and ordered LCISD to make a list of accommodations. The state also ordered LCISD to set aside $61,200 for the benefit of the student. The federal court will hold a hearing on September 27 concerning a temporary restraining order.
