BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Broken Arrow Public Schools board members agreed, in principle, to settle a lawsuit brought against the school district.

It happened during an executive session at the June 3rd school board meeting.

The suit challenges the right of the district to prevent students from wearing cultural regalia during their graduation ceremony.

The board members reached a proposed settlement while in executive session.

A BAPS spokesperson provided the following statement:

"The parties have reached a confidential settlement in principle. There is no admission of liability by the district or statement of truth as to the factual allegations in Ms. Black's pleadings. The payment of any monies is being made by the district's insurance carrier, but there is no signed agreement at this time."
