The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals set oral arguments for Oct. 5 to consider the ACLU's appeal of a
federal district judge's decision to allow single gender classes to continue at a Kaplan middle school.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the Vermilion Parish School Board claiming the single-gender classes at Rene Rost Middle School were discriminatory and violated students rights to an equal education.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a Rost parent and her two daughters.

A federal district judge ruled in April that the all-boys and all-girls classes could continue under court-mandated conditions addressing errors in the program's planning and implementation.
