      Again, The Eagle is reporting without all the facts!

      Minutes of Regular Meeting.
      November 28, 2011.
      The Board of Trustees.
      Oxford School District, Oxford, MS.

      The following action was taken relative to executive session.
      Litigation Matters
      Ms. Byars made a motion to give the School Board Attorney settlement authority up to $85,000 to settle HD vs. OSD subject to an acceptable settlement agreement and release. Ms. Reed seconded. Votes cast for the motion: Ms. Reed; Ms. Barksdale; Ms. Byars. Votes cast against the motion: Dr. Chain; Mr. Tosh. Motion carries 3:2.

      What the Article fails to report: Looks like it cost the Oxford School District a considerable amount more than the original MDE Hearing Officer decision to dismiss!
      Why would they pay, if they did’t violate this childs FAPE under IDEA!

      Poor Article! I would like to hear the parent’s story!
