MEDIA UPDATE - Deer Park High School Honorary Cheerleader
Deer Park ISD representatives met yesterday afternoon with the parents of a Deer Park High School honorary cheerleader.
As the District has stated previously, due to privacy laws, we cannot share many facts about the situation with the public. We specifically asked the parents to waive their privacy rights and allow us to share details about the student's participation in cheerleading with news organizations and the public, but we have not received a response.
Thus, though we can state that an agreement was reached in about five minutes, we cannot share details of the meeting. The agreement means the school can continue including the student in the cheer program in a way that meets the expectations of both the parents and the District. In fact, the mother told local news organization KTRK yesterday, "I'm glad we got this cleared up. Everybody is happy now."
