BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School District is prepared to pay $25,000 to a student who claims she was given bad advice by a school counselor.

According to the lawsuit which is set to be settled at a school board meeting next week, Marisa Davino was in an accelerated program known as the Cambridge AICE program. It involves college-level courses in high school. But due to what Davino calls misinformation provided by the Palm Beach County School District, she did not successfully complete certain requirements of the program. As a result, she did not receive an “AICE Diploma,” which she alleges cost her a $30,000 scholarship.

Without accepting fault or liability, the Palm Beach County School District is settling the case for $25,000. The school board is expected to approve the settlement at its meeting next week.

Read the allegations in Davino’s lawsuit, below — followed by the settlement proposal. Davino was a student at Seminole Ridge Community High School at the time of the alleged incident.
