The family of a child with Down syndrome is suing Williamson County Schools after their child was turned away three times from an after-school care program, The Tennessean reports. The school district claims it could not accept the child because it can’t hire a one-on-one aide who is needed to accommodate the child. The parents are asking for a judgment requiring the district to hire a trained aide for their child and reimburse the cost incurred by the parents while they sent their child to more expensive, private after school care.
