    Parents claim school officials at St. Scholastica High School knew about their daughter's condition and that their daughter's discipline problems were connected to her hearing impairment.

    St. Scholastica High School in West Rogers Park faced a lawsuit filed by the parents of a hearing-impaired girl who was expelled from the school for offenses including failure to listen.

    The suit was filed by Aamed Pryor and Niya Jackson, the parents of the girl who was a senior at the school, 7416 N. Ridge, at the time of her expulsion in December, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    In the lawsuit, the parents claim school officials knew about the girl's condition and that their daughter's discipline problems were connected to her hearing impairment, reported the Chicago Tribune.

    The school's principal is named in the lawsuit, along with the school's president, the Archdiocese of Chicago and Benedictine Sisters.
