DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal judge has refused to force the Red Clay school district to enroll three children living outside the district.
The children previously attended a Red Clay school but have been living outside the district since their mother was placed on unpaid leave and lost her apartment. Their father, who shares custody, enrolled the children in the Christina school district, and the children now reportedly live with their godmother in the Colonial district.
The American Civil Liberties Union argued that the children are entitled to attend Red Clay, and to have transportation provided as well.
The judge ruled last week that the plaintiffs haven't shown they are entitled to the "extraordinary remedy" and are unlikely to succeed in arguing that the children are entitled to it because they are "homeless."
