Blind trustee files suit against Cotati-Rohnert Park school district

Published Friday February 17

A blind school board trustee is suing the Cotati-Rohnert Park school district for allegedly refusing to allow a special aide to assist that person at meetings.

In the suit, Timothy Nonn, who was elected to the school board in Nov argued the district violated state and federal disability discrimination laws when it barred Janet Lowery, a retired special education teacher who volunteers as his reader and scriber, from sitting next to the person at school board meetings.

The lawsuit was filed late Wed in America District Court in San Francisco.

Lowery also was prohibited from assisting the person during a school visit, Nonn commented Thursday.
