MARION, Texas--The local chapter of the NAACP has been in contact with the US Justice department in regards to Marion ISD.
"They are willing to come down and do diversity training for Marion ISD, but to date they have not been able to get an in road into Marion", said Elmer Williams with the NAACP local chapter.
Williams has been working with an African American family and their teen daughter who found a noose and racist note near her car at Marion High School back in February.
The family has filed another grievance with the school district, and the NAACP is calling for more to be done.
According to Williams things have not gotten better since the incident. "What's happening to the family now is that the children have been impacted negatively, " added Williams.
The matter is now in the hands of Marion School Board members who are scheduled to hear the grievance on May 30th, after the school year is over.
According to Marion ISD superintendent Mario Sotello, the board was ready to hear the grievance back in late March, but the family rescheduled.
The NAACP told News 4 WOAI the district didn't give enough notice.
As for the US Justice Department coming into the District, the superintendent said he's not opposed, but the decision would be left up to the school board.
