COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) - The North Bend School District has agreed to pay $25,000 to the family of a disabled student over injury to the child and claims of civil rights violations.

The World reports (https://bit.ly/2bYgaZR ) the district hasn’t admitted guilt by settling and says the agreement will help it “focus on the education of this student” and others in the district.

The family’s attorney, Marianne Dugan, says in a news release that the student came home from school one day with an injured leg in May 2014. In July of that year, she returned home one day with a bleeding stoma, the port surgically created in her stomach that serves as a catheter.

The release alleges nurses and teachers injured the child, and that the district allowed them to get away with it.
