Students protest school's alleged lack of response to off-campus sexual assault

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Students protested outside the Carmen Schools of Science and Technology Friday, March 13.

They were protesting the school's refusal to allow a student to graduate after an incident where she claims she was sexually assaulted.

According to students at the protest, the female student was sexually assaulted off-campus and it caused her to fall behind on her studies and eventually class credits. 

They also said the school did not offer her any help with the matter.

In a statement, Carmen Schools said in part:

"The former student was invited to re-enroll with the understanding that she needed an additional semester to earn required course credits towards graduation. We understand the requirements may disappoint her, but remain supportive as she assesses options to complete her high school career."
