Sacramento City Unified School District settles lawsuit over special education practices

The Sacramento City Unified School District has reached a settlement in a lawsuit brought on by the Black Parallel School Board and district families in 2019. The BPSB is a nonprofit community-based organization that advocates for African American families within the school district. The class action lawsuit claimed students with disabilities were excluded and segregated from classrooms, wrongfully suspended or disciplined, and were not receiving necessary resources within the special education program. It argued Black students with disabilities were impacted by these issues at a disproportionate rate. More here:
