1 min read


DENVER (KDVR) — The U.S. Department of Justice says it has settled a lawsuit with the Cherry Creek School District that was filed after allegations surfaced that the district failed to communicate properly with parents with limited English proficiency.

The district is one of Colorado’s largest, serving about 53,000 students with parents who report speaking over 150 languages. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado said in a release that it received multiple complaints from parents with limited English proficiency who said they could not participate meaningfully in important school programs and activities because the district did not provide effective language assistance services.
