School board will debate settlement in teachers-cult lawsuit

AVON, Conn. – A school board on a proposal for the settlement of a lawsuit that accuses teachers of “indoctrinating” three sisters in a religious cult that celebrates death.

The Avon Board of Education in Connecticut is scheduled to discuss and possibly vote on the proposal Tuesday. Terms of payment are not published. Advocates turned out earlier this month that an agreement had been reached.

The sisters of the parents called the Avon school district, three teachers and a guidance counselor in the federal district court almost four years ago. She claimed the Avon high School teachers indoctrinated their daughters into a cult, causing them to suffer severe personality changes, are closed, and speaking a foreign language.

The officials of the School denied the allegations.

The lawsuit claimed the girls’ civil and constitutional rights were being violated and sought covered damages.
