Flagstaff, AZ: (Mar-07-07) A long standing class action lawsuit against Page Unified School District (PUSD) accused it of segregating its two elementary schools into white and Indian. The suit alleged that the district's open enrollment policy allowed the segregation to occur and that PUSD's Elementary Reconfiguration plan admitted segregation at the two schools. Though the school did not admit to any wrongdoing, it agreed to pay $30,000 worth of plaintiffs' attorney fees in the lawsuit, part of a two-pronged settlement agreement. The second part involves addressing underlying community issues related to ethnic disparities at the two schools, which will be addressed at future board meetings, though the district does not plan to use forced busing or ethnic enrollment quotas to reduce the ethnic disparity between the two schools.
