There are more plaintiffs in a discrimination lawsuit against the Indian River School District.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that two families with children in the district have been added to three other individuals who attended George Washington Carvey Academy.

The paper reports that the amended complaint also charges that there was a prison-like environment at the school.

The News Journal says that the original suit also charged that the school failed to provide for the student’s needs and that those as young as three years of age were forced to share campus with those as old as 18.

The school district told the paper that it would be filing a response to the amended complaint by May 18th .
