Gay-Straight Alliance (Colin ex rel. Colin v. Orange Unified School District)

In 1999, the Orange Unified School District voted unanimously to prohibit the formation of a Gay-Straight Alliance at El Modena High School. The students sued the school board, claiming that their rights under the First Amendment and the 1984 Equal Access Act had been violated. In the first-ever ruling of its kind, Judge David O. Carter of the United States District Court for the Central District of California issued a preliminary injunction ordering the school to allow the GSA to meet.[1]

District Schools

The District operates 29 elementary, 5 middle, 4 high schools, a continuation high school, a K-8 math and science magnet school and two special schools. Nineteen of its forty-two schools have been recognized as California Distinguished Schools. Three of its high schools are consistently listed among Newsweek's 1,000 Best Public High Schools in America.[2] [3] [4] Some elementary and middle schools within the district also continue to achieve above average standardized test scores and national distinctions, while others are state designated Underperforming Schools under the No Child Left Behind sanctions.[5] Generally, its highest performing schools are in the Anaheim Hills area where all schools have been named California Distinguished Schools and constantly rank among the best schools in the county, while schools in the City of Orange tend to have lower standardized test scores.
