Lawsuit over hybrid learning at Del. high school dismissed

LEWES, Del. – A lawsuit accusing a Delaware high school of violating a student’s constitutional rights with its hybrid learning plan has been dismissed.

The Cape Henlopen School District and an attorney representing the high school senior announced on Friday that the suit had been dropped, following an agreement between the two parties. We’re told by the attorney representing the student that “the school starting providing zoom access to the classes and so my client received everything she sought, so we dismissed the case.”

The student alleged that the district didn’t provide equal education opportunities. According to the lawsuit, student attending class in person were able to receive two days of instruction while those learning online amid the pandemic only got one.

The district said it was satisfied with the outcome of the suit.
