RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- It's a story News 4 has been following since June. A parent is arrested while trying to speak at a school board meeting. Now, two months later, his name is cleared.
In June University of Nevada professor Larry Dailey was arrested after he violated a trespass order that he said was unwarranted.
As News 4 covered the story, you saw Dailey file a lawsuit against the district, the charges against him be dropped, and now a settlement is reached.
School district attorney Randy Drake announced the deal Tuesday. It says the school district admits Dailey didn't threaten any employees and apologizes for the inconvenience the allegations caused his family.
Dailey said the apology gives him hope that now they can address the bigger issues within special education.
"We need to step up and be equal partners in our children's education," Dailey said. "I don't feel like there's a win. I feel like there's an opportunity and I hope we take it."
With the district admitting the accusations against Dailey aren't true, News 4 asked Superintendent Pedro Martinez why these false claims went on for so long - something we didn't really get an answer to. (You can watch the full interview on this page.)
Another heated topic was on the agenda Tuesday: seclusion rooms.
In July People First of Nevada told the board schools in the district are still using a form of punishment that was outlawed by the state in 1999.
The first staff report has been presented and it outlined a to do list, including visits to each of the schools where use of these rooms has been reported.
Board president Barbara Clark said if this is happening they'll make sure it stops. They hope to get an advisory committee, including members of the public, up and running as soon as possible to help investigate the claims.
