The Missouri Supreme Court today announced it would not hear the appeal of former Carthage R-9 Parents as Teachers Director Lynda Homa's lawsuit against the school district.
Ms. Homa sued for reinstatement after she was fired for her alleged involvement in parent-educator Laura Davenport's visit to a jailed Guatemalan woman.
Homa, who had been with the district for 20 years and supervised the Parents as Teachers program, was dismissed Aug. 27 after a long hearing before the school board. School officials said Ms. Davenport was trying to get the woman to give her child up for adoption.
Ms. Homa said she gave permission for the visit so the woman could receive forms that needed to be signed for the child to receive state services.
