HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Huntsville Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Transgender group is still waiting for a response from Huntsville City Schools after the group alleged a Grissom High Student was bullied by her Junior ROTC leader.

The allegations were made public in April.

The female student claimed her Junior ROTC instructor told her how homosexuality is wrong and preached his religious views at Grissom High School.

Tuesday the group sent another letter to Huntsville City Schools asking again what the district plans on doing about the incident.

Executive Director James Robinson said he is asking for his policies to be followed for the Junior ROTC instructor and from the school.

He also wants to put on a bullying seminar for the staff at Grissom something he claims his organization can help pay for.

"This is not something that's going to be swept under the rug. This is a situation that could damage lives, it could keep people from going into military service, it could cause young people to commit suicide. It has already resulted in this young person being harassed and bullied by other students," said James Robinson, GLBT Advocacy and Youth Services.

A Huntsville City Schools spokesperson said because of the holiday - a lot of the district has the day off including the superintendent.

Look for an update on this story later this week.
