MARSHALL (KMHL) – The Marshall School District announced a settlement in the lawsuit over a flag display at the Marshall Middle School.
In the settlement between the district and the group Marshall Concerned Citizens the district agreed to remove the flag display from the middle school cafeteria. As part of the settlement, the district will not pay any legal fees or damages and admits no wrongdoing. School officials also agreed to make some policy changes to two policies as part of the agreement.
The group filed the lawsuit in March, more than a year after a controversy surrounding the flag display erupted over the LGBTQ plus flag being included.
In a statement released after announcing the settlement, the district said even though the flag display is being taken down it continues to support the needs and growth of all students, including its LGBTQ students.
