APEX, N.C. — A family suing the Wake County School System over reassignment has another setback.

School leaders decided Brittany and Amber Bailey cannot attend the same high school.

A judge ruled it was not clear if school board members considered the best interests of the teens when making the decision, so the family was awarded another hearing.  However, the appeal was denied again by the school board.

The Baileys said the change could prevent Brittany from attending an early morning religious class because she relies on her sister for transportation.
