A middle school in Wood County has become the subject of a lawsuit.
Single-gender classes at Van Devender Middle School have provoked the American Civil Liberties Union of West Virginia to sue Wood County Schools.
The Associated Press says the notification came earlier this month after the school board rejected the ACLU's demand to end the classes.
Earlier this year, the ACLU sent letters to school officials in Kanawha, Cabell and Wood counties saying single-gender classes violate federal law.
The Cabell and Kanawha programs ended this summer. School officials attributed the decisions to logistical and administrative issues.
Wood County school officials say they believe the Van Devender classes comply with the law.
