The Minneapolis school board has approved a $400,000 settlement in a lawsuit on behalf of more than 600 young mothers who were taught by unlicensed teachers.

Broadway High School serves girls who dropped out of school and then returned as young mothers. A district investigation in 2011 found that 13 people taught students at Broadway without proper teaching licenses or waivers that would have let them teach temporarily.

Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson said the settlement will help the 657 affected students who attended Broadway from the 2008-09 through 2010-11 school years achieve their educational goals.
