Eyewitness news has learned that there is an update with the teacher associations lawsuit against the Tamaqua Area School District.
The Schuylkill County Court granted the Pennsylvania State Teacher Association standing to move forward with their lawsuit.
The association filed against the district in November after district adopted policy 705, which would allow school staff to be armed in September.
They argued the policy goes against state laws and is unsafe.
A judge dismissed the cases, saying that they needed to provide more proof that this policy would have an impact on the filers.
The association refiled and the court overruled the preliminary objections from the district.
Now, the district has 20 days to respond to the teacher association’s complaints.
