Aleah Bourne, a 16 year old Crandall High School student lost her father last December. After her father’s passing she moved in with her grandparents in nearby Seagoville.
On Monday Crandall ISD denied Bourne transfer to the high school she is a cheerleader at and back into a school district in which she’s been attending school since the second grade.
The Crandall ISD board of trustees said it does not allow students to transfer in from other cities and it will not make an exception for a popular student for fear of starting a precedent it does not want to deal with.
Dozens of people showed up Monday night to show support for Aleah but their voices were not considered.
