DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — The Denison Independent School District, facing a lawsuit by the Texas attorney general's office, says it anticipates an end to the legal action.

The district's Board of Trustees has authorized Superintendent Dr. David Kirkbride to work with lawyers to resolve the suit.

Attorney General Ken Paxton's office sued the district and its trustees last month over violations of the Texas Education Code and the Texas Election Code after DISD allegedly used its official website to highlight lawmakers and school leaders who oppose school vouchers. 

"The District anticipates the suit will be resolved soon," DISD said in a statement issued on Wednesday. "Denison ISD remains committed to abiding by the Texas Education Code and the Texas Election Code."

Paxton's office filed similar lawsuits against several Texas school districts, including Denton and Castleberry.
