TUSD is currently under a decades-old federal desegregation court order. To be in compliance with the Federal Court and to get off of the Deseg Case is known as “Unitary Status.”
Today, the Court has granted partial unitary status to TUSD within some specific areas while other areas have not yet been found unitary. Importantly, the Court will continue to oversee all areas of the court decree/USP until full unitary status is granted. The District remains under obligation to report on all areas to the Court. The Court anticipates one more year prior to the District being granted full unitary status.
Back in May, we reported on the shocking filing by TUSD to get the Latino Plaintiffs, who represent over 60% of the student population, kicked off the Deseg Case. The Court has rejected (once again) another ridiculous and costly court filing by TUSD.
