Little Elm High School Students, Parents Asked To Attend Listening Session Following Protests About Sexual Assault Allegation

DENTON COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) - Little Elm High School students and parents were asked to attend a listening session following weeks of uproar and student protests about how the district handled a sexual assault allegation.

Recently students planned multiple protests about how the district handled it. A video circulated on the Friday before Thanksgiving break showing officers using a Taser, pepper spray, and arresting four students during a planned protest.

Monday students picked up where they left off, but this time it was more peaceful. There was a walkout of about 50 students. The district superintendent, a school board member and town mayor, all met with the group.

The listening session begins at 6 p.m. in the school's auditorium.
