SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Syracuse City School District has provided documents requested by the Civil Rights Bureau of the State Attorney General's office.

The district was subpoenaed by New York State, and provided the requested documents voluntarily. New York State is investigation the district's compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Individuals with Disabilities Act, and New York Education Law.

The state plans to look into multiple complaints, and use the documents and data as part of the investigation.

The school district released a statement, and said the board of education and superintendent have been, "transparent regarding the district's disciplinary data and very proactive in addressing the disciplinary data and practices. The district has begun the process of implementing an interim code of conduct and convened a diverse task force comprised of staff, parents and community members to revise the entire code of conduct."
