AG: District Needs More Action In Racial Case

posted by John Baibak - 

There's an update on the response to  several racial incidents at Easthampton High School last year.  

The  Easthampton school committee at its meeting last week discussed a letter  sent in July from the office of Massachusetts Attorney General Maura  Healey which said several provisions of an agreement that was reached  with the school district last summer were not met last school year,  including providing student training on bullying and harassment.  

The  letter said the AG's office was confident the school district and new  superintendent Allison LeClair will work to fill in the gaps for the  2018-2019 school year.  

The involvement from the state was prompted by  incidents including a fight between students of color and a white  student after the white student had allegedly used a racial slur on  social media, and another where a student reportedly wore a Confederate  flag shirt to school.
