SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – A high school that angered a Utah mom by leaving special education students out of a yearbook will now print an insert to include their photos.
Leslee Bailey says the principal of the Blue Peak High School in Tooele called Tuesday afternoon to apologize.
Her daughter’s feelings had been hurt when she wasn’t included, and Bailey says the principal told her he never meant for that to happen.
Bailey says the insert page with the pictures of Amber Bailey and her 16 classmates will be available next week.
The students attend a job skills program that shares the building with the high school.
Tooele County School District Superintendent Scott Rogers has said the decision was made to reflect that special needs program and alternative high school were separate, and it wasn’t motivated by malice or bad intentions.
