RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina’s largest school system says it will improve education for students with mental health or behavioral issues after a complaint was filed with state education officials.

The News & Observer reported Sunday that the Wake County school system said last week that it will now work to improve staff training and policies. A July complaint by Advocates For Children’s Services accused the system of violating the rights of students with behavioral issues. Allegations included failing to provide transportation for students assigned to alternative school programs.

The system doesn’t admit to any wrongdoing under the settlement agreement. The agreement says other changes by the school system will include providing suspended students with additional education services and offering additional services to students frequently absent due to transportation issues or suspensions.
