Anoka-Hennepin School Board approved the settlement 5-1 at its meeting
Monday evening. The district agreed to a long list of measures to help
prevent and address sex-based harassment at its middle and high schools,
including hiring consultants and working with federal authorities to
ensure the district complies with the terms. The district's insurance
carrier will pay the six current and former students named in the
lawsuits a total of $270,000, and the district will tap about $500,000
of its own funds to implement the agreement.
