Federal Lawsuit Against NISD

by Donna McCollum

Nacogdoches school administrators and several board members spent Monday in Marshall inside a federal court room. A federal lawsuit is being heard there involving the rights of 'free speech.'

Lufkin attorney Jackie Cox filed the lawsuit on behalf of her client Kathy Conroy. NISD's special education specialist is challenging a district policy that requires complaints be taken to administrators before they're heard by the school board.

Also named in the suit is the Texas Education Agency. Cox believes the TEA is wrong in telling school board members they can't communicate with school staff.
