The Court’s Order requires that ODE post the notice of the proposed settlement on its website, and disseminate a copy of the notice to all local educational agencies (LEAs) and ask that the notice be posted on the LEA’s website and in a central location accessible to the public in each of its buildings open to the public. ODE must also request that each district disseminate the notice directly to parents or students through email, any electronic portals (e.g. parent/student portals used to distribute grades, assignments, forms, etc.), or any other means reasonably calculated to reach the parents or students in that district.
This is why your district received the request from ODE, even if it is not among the 11 school districts that are the focus of the litigation and settlement.
