NOW: Teen suing Baraboo School District speaks out

BARABOO, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 17-year-old girl who is suing the Baraboo School District is speaking out. 

Dasia Banks claims that the district failed to appropriately respond to her reports of sexual assault and racial discrimination.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court, she details how she was harassed and bullied for the color of her skin, was called the n-word on numerous occasions, and experienced numerous cases of being sexually harassed by other students. 

"It doesn't feel right. I was born there and it is heartbreaking not being able to go to what should be your home and not feel like home," said Dasia Banks. 

School district leaders say they have not been served a lawsuit yet and will not comment without seeking legal advice first.
