The Hamilton County Board of Education is asking a federal appeals court to review a ruling that it violated federal guidelines protecting students with disabilities, the Times Free Press reports. The ruling stems from a 2013 incident in which a second-grader with Downs syndrome was removed from Normal Park Elementary. Federal Judge Curtis Collier said in July that the school district violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, a federal law prohibiting discrimination against those with disabilities.
