Summary to create a better understanding of the Day
Scholar and Day Schools Class Actions:
The two closely related class actions are the Day Scholars and Day Schools.
The Day Scholars/Gottfriedson class action is brought on behalf of students who attended Indian Residential Schools but during the day only and returned home every night.
This lawsuit unfortunately has not settled.
The Day Scholars/Gottfriedson class action is ongoing, there is nothing that the class members need to do right now, but they can fill out the form found on the website so that it is easier to communicate with them if and when the case does resolve. http://justicefordayscholars.com/
The one that recently settled was the Day Schools/McLean class action brought on behalf of students who attended Indian Day Schools during the day. That proposed settlement has to be approved by a court before it is finalized and before any individuals can apply for compensation. The list of Day Schools that are part of the McLean class action can be found here: http://indiandayschools.com/en/wp-content/uploads/Schedule-K-List-of-Day-Schools-002.pdf
