A class action complaint filed on February 11, 2016 in federal court, Central District of California and assigned to District Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell and Magistrate Judge Gail J. Standish, alleged that the placement of a class of children violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and state disability rights laws, by unnecessarily segregating them from students without disabilities, and denying them educational opportunities available to other students at the district’s campuses. The complaint alleged that the defendant, Pasadena USD sent students with disabilities and only such students to a segregated school site, Focus Point Academy (“Focus Point”), where they were “consigned to an inferior education, denied access to electives and extracurricular activities, isolated from their non-disabled peers, deprived of the benefits of normal socialization, and, in general, suffer the same harms as any other victims of segregation.” The students were represented by Disability Rights California, the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, Mental Health Advocacy Services, and Morrison & Foerster LLP, which is representing on a pro bono basis.

The case settled Nov 19, 2018 and per the settlement, PUSD agreed to retain a national expert to evaluate PUSD’s educational programs for students with disabilities and make recommendations for improvements to better serve these students, including the six who filed the complaint. The evaluation considered transition and inclusion of the students, among other issues.  Once the recommendations are agreed upon, PUSD is to implement them over the next five years, and the expert retained will monitor implementation. A copy of the settlement agreement is linked on Clearinghouse in the court's order dated Oct 31, 2019.  Under the terms of the settlement, he court retained jurisdiction to enforce its terms for a five year monitoring period. However, there has been no substantive action on the docket since the settlement was approved in 2019.
