An affluent school district was subject to a court-ordered desegregation plan involving busing. After receiving the court order recognizing that the district had achieved unitary status, the district decided to discontinue elementary school busing and move toward a neighborhood plan that would bus sixth-graders to a middle school. Parents and citizens challenged the end of elementary school busing, alleging that it would recreate segregated schools.

b. Did the district use its new status to engage in de jure segregation? Why or Why not?
c. How do you think the court would rule in this case? Provide rationale for your response.
