STEVENSVILLE — A Stevensville man is taking the Lakeshore school district and Superintendent Philip Freeman to federal court, saying his constitutional rights were violated when he was banned from coming onto school property and wasn’t given a chance to appeal at a school board meeting.

The problem stems from an incident on April 24, 2017, when school officials said that Zachary Zientarski of Stevensville climbed a fence to enter Roosevelt Elementary School through an unauthorized door and became argumentative when discovered by a teacher.
