The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund filed a civil rights complaint against Southlake schools, alleging that district officials failed to protect students from discrimination based on race, sex, or gender identity.

This latest complaint was filed on behalf of two Southlake-based organizations — the Cultural & Racial Equity for Every Dragon and the Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition — as well as individual students who have experienced harassment, the group noted in a statement.
