Abstract These cases -- one involving the Ithaca City School District and another involving the North Syracuse Central School District -- concern whether public school districts are covered by, and thus must follow, the New York State Human Rights Law, which expressly protects students from discrimination by schools and harassment in schools by students, teachers, and school administrators. Both cases arise from incidents in which black students were subjected to race-based bullying at school. In both cases, the school districts maintain that the Human Rights Law does not apply to public schools.
