The agreement resolves allegations that the school violated the ADA by refusing to consider a child, known by the pseudonym Abraham Smith, for enrollment due to the fact that he has HIV.
Under the settlement agreement, the School is required to pay $700,000 to Abraham Smith and his mother, to adopt and enforce a policy prohibiting discrimination and requiring equal opportunity for students with disabilities, including those with HIV, in the School’s programs and services, and to provide training to staff and administrators on the requirements of the ADA.
