MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A tentative agreement to resolve complaints that Somali students were harassed in St. Cloud calls for the school district to report any future incidents to the U.S. Department of Education.

That’s according to Superintendent Bruce Watkins, who tells The Associated Press that the agreement goes before the school board Thursday for approval.

Watkins says the agreement also calls for the district to make its schools more welcoming to the district’s Somali students.

Watkins says the agreement does not find that the district broke any rules in its handling of the incidents.

The Department of Education began investigating the district after a complaint was filed last year.
