The Indian River School District says it is not dumping students as punishment into the George Washington Carver Academy.

The district is responding to an amended lawsuit by a group that promotes educational opportunities for minorities.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that the original suit was filed on behalf of five students who said their rights were being violated under the 14th amendment and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

It has since added two more students to the suit.
