Grissom High School harrassment claims

The Huntsville City School District is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Education over claims of harassment.

Officials say a JROTC instructor at Grissom High School told students that homosexuality is sinful.

GLBT Advocacy and Youth Services, an Alabama nonprofit, filed a complaint with the Department of Education in October.

In their complaint, the organization says the school district failed to prevent and stop harassment.

The school district received a letter from the department of education this week.
