A lawsuit filed by families in Austin, Texas, alleges the city's school district failed to follow up on sexual assault allegations across three campuses. At the center of the complaint are an alleged assault at Lanier High School, two in Boone Elementary’s pre-K program, and another at Bernice Hart Elementary. According to the complaint, none of the cases were referred to the district's Title IX coordinator, an action required by federal law. Instead, the cases were closed without disciplinary action, the complaint alleges. The families filing suit state they do not want financial compensation, just appropriate resources for students in need of assistance.
