Lawyers for the school district and attorney general's office will meet back in court next week to work on a long-term plan for Ashley and the school.

The family argued in the lawsuit that the state's medical marijuana law as written denies the child due process and violates the federally mandated Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
