LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge says the special education program within the Pulaski County Special School District complies with a desegregation order and is no longer under court supervision.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported (https://bit.ly/1sFTtGV ) that Thursday’s decision by U.S. District Judge D. Price Marshall Jr. leaves five areas still subject to court review: student achievement, student discipline, facilities, staffing and its own desegregation monitoring.

The Pulaski County district and a group of intervenors are the only parties left in a lawsuit that has its roots in the Little Rock desegregation crisis of 1957. Other parties were the Little Rock and North Little Rock districts.

The judge also must consider approving a $200 million tax election that would let the district build replacement buildings for Wilbur Mills and Joseph T. Robinson high schools.
