Stop wasting taxpayer money....end the CdM Cheating Scandal Lawsuit!

The NMUSD and school board arrived at the kindest possible agreement for 11 students who were caught in a "cheating ring".  These 11 students received "stipulated expulsions".  This is a "kinder" punishment than regular expulsion because it allows the children to remain in their same school district.  All 11 of the children and their parents agreed upon the "stipulations" and signed the agreements.

8 of the 11 students have accepted responsibility and moved on.  The remaining 3 are appealing which has led to a lawsuit being filed against NMUSD (Newport-Mesa Unified School District), parents and students.  This will cost ALL of us money to fight!
