GRETNA – A local private high school is being sued by parents who claim they had to remove their children from school due to not receiving a proper education.
Jennifer Norman, Vanessa Sario and Jose Sarrio filed suit against Knights Academy and High School in the 24th Judicial District Court on March 25.
Norman and the Sarios allege that prior to the 2013- 2014 school year they entered into a contractual agreement to enroll their children at Knights Academy and High School. The plaintiffs assert that to prepare for the school year they purchased uniforms and supplies and made yearly tuition payments with the anticipation that the defendants would provide their children with a quality education. Norman and the Sarios claim that early on in the 2013-2014 school year it became clear their children were not receiving proper learning materials that were promised when they paid tuition.
Two weeks after the school year began the plaintiffs allege they met with a representative from the school to say they would be removing their children immediately due to the school’s failure to comply with the contract they had signed.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for emotional distress and economic damages.
Norman and the Sarios are represented by Justin I. Woods of Woods, Bowers & Woods LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division I Judge Nancy A. Miller.
Case no. 736-805.
