Appeals court date set in Kaplan school case

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in a challenge of the single-gender programs at a Kaplan middle school.

A federal district judge ruled in April that the all-boys and all-girls classes at Rene Rost Middle School could continue under court-mandated conditions addressing errors in the program's planning and implementation in the 2009-10 school year.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana filed a lawsuit in September that claimed the program was discriminatory and violated students' rights to an equal education and other federal
regulations.

Arguments have tentatively been set for the week of Oct. 4.

Vermilion Parish School Board attorneys filed a motion asking the court to dismiss the appeal because the allegations were directed at a program, which ended in May.
