Parents suing district over kid's referral

Parents suing district over kid's referral

The parents of a teenager referred to Child Protective Services because educators believed he was suicidal are suing the Warwick Valley School District.

In a federal claim, Everett Cox III, a former Warwick school board member, and Nan Ping Peng allege school officials violated their due process rights and their son's privacy rights. They want the district to pay for a private school.

"There's a level of recklessness here," said the parents' Goshen lawyer, Michael Sussman. "A kid has the right to speak out in response to a school assignment without a fear of his family being destroyed."
