The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction won’t be taking action against the Chippewa Falls School district for claims of harassment of students despite an appeal of a lawsuit brought by the ACLU of Wisconsin.
DPI said that while Chippewa Falls officials failed to investigate those claims properly, the students involved no longer attend school in the district. ACLU attorney Elizabeth Lambert says there are serious issues that need to be addressed. Lambert says she can’t discuss the next steps they’ll be taking in the case, but that more students are being affected by harassment. Officials from the Chippewa Falls School District did not respond to a request for comment.
