Fired Idaho principal says she was discriminated because of race
LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - A fired northern Idaho high school principal who says she was discriminated against because of her race has filed a notice of her intentions to bring a lawsuit against the Kamiah School District.
The Lewiston Tribune reports in a story on Wednesday that Veneice Guillory-Lacy contends her firing from Kamiah High School is because didn't keep American Indian activities separate from the school.
The tort claim contends that violates her free speech rights and is discriminatory based on race or ethnicity. Guillory-Lacy is of American Indian and African-American descent.
Guillory-Lacy says the problems started on the first day of school when she greeted students in English and Nez Perce.
She was placed on administrative leave a few weeks into her first year as principal, and fired a month later.
The school district declined to comment.
