After turning down a settlement deal earlier this year, it seems the Canton School District in Illinois has reached an agreement with the plaintiffs. But no one is saying what that deal is–at least not until January 20, 2010 when it will be announced at a school board meeting. The deal was scheduled to be revealed last week, but on the advice of a district lawyer, the board held the announcement.
As a reminder, here are a few of the allegations from the original complaint filed in May 2009:
- football and boys’ basketball have better sound systems
- the band, cheerleaders and other spirit squads attend boys’ games, but not girls
- district funding is not equitably distributed
- and that there are inequities in equipment and locker rooms.
