In this case of racial segregation, the United States noted that the Calhoun County School District allowed students to be transferred to a county school, regardless of the impact of these transfers on the school district`s desegregation obligations. The United States and the school district have agreed on a transfer policy that governs the transfer of students within the school district and to other school districts. The parties submitted the transfer policy as part of a consent decision, which was submitted to the Federal District Court for review and approval. In 2004, the parties also agreed to merge all middle school classes into a single school in the district. This agreement was approved by the court and entered into force in the 2004-05 school year. This case involves claims against the Hawaii Department of Education and various government officials for alleged violations of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504) and the Disability Education Act (IDEA). This racial segregation case concerns the Longview Independent School District (“LISD”) in Longview, Texas, which was ordered by the Texas District Court on August 27, 1970 to abolish racial segregation. On January 24, 2011, as part of a district-wide consolidation plan, the court approved a consent order incorporating the revised LISD attendance areas. On 28 February 2014, the Court declared that LISD was partially uniform and had eliminated all traces of past de jure discrimination to the extent possible in its facilities, transportation, extracurricular activities and assignment of staff.
After a thorough review of the school district`s policies and practices and subsequent hearings, the court approved the consent order proposed by the parties on December 22, 2014. The Section oversees the District`s compliance with this Consent Order, which requires LISD to publish and widely disseminate the application and assessment procedures it uses to admit students to the Hudson PEP Elementary School Magnet Program; allow and facilitate the transfer of majority to minority between certain schools; ensure equal access to pre-graduation courses in its secondary schools; and publish and disseminate admission procedures for gifted and talented programs.

On July 31, 1969, the court issued an executive order establishing a plan to abolish racial segregation in the school district. In 2010, the United States, in collaboration with the School Committee, initiated a thorough review of the School Committee`s compliance with the commitments made under the court`s operational orders in this case. At the end of its review, the United States concluded that the school board met the requirements for uniformity of status with respect to facilities, extracurricular activities and transportation. On March 17, 2013, the court issued the district`s consent order declaring partial unit status and dismissal in the areas of facilities, transportation and extracurricular activities. The parties continue to negotiate other areas of assignment for students, faculty and staff. Many executives (and employees in general) are subject to arbitration clauses that they are not aware of until a dispute arises. The applicability of such clauses is often highly controversial. This is especially true in civil rights cases where two established principles compete with each other (i.e., the preference for arbitration under federal law against strong public policy against discrimination). Enforceability is often specific to the facts, for example if the arbitration agreement and the waiver of judicial recourse are sufficiently obvious and clear.
Shortly thereafter, the Ministry combined its review of Title IX compliance with a review undertaken by the Department of Education`s Office of Civil Rights (OCR). Both Title IX and Title IV prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programmes. After numerous interviews and a comprehensive review of the university`s policies, complaint procedures, investigative practices, training, and responses to reports of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and retaliation, the ministry and the OCR identified a number of areas where the university needed to take further steps to ensure compliance with Titles IX and IV. 1. If, within thirty days of the submission of an indictment to the Commission or within thirty days of the expiry of a reference period referred to in points (c) or (d) of this Section, the Commission has not been able to obtain from the defendant a conciliation agreement acceptable to the Commission, the Commission may bring a civil action against any defendant: which is not a government – government agency or political subdivision named in the indictment. In the case of a defendant that is a government, government agency, or political subdivision, if the Commission has not been able to obtain from the defendant a conciliation agreement acceptable to the Commission, the Commission will take no further action and will refer the matter to the Attorney General, who may bring a civil action against that defendant in the competent U.S. District Court.
