AU received a complaint that a local school district featured a prayer at its mandatory annual convocation for district faculty and staff, as well as for the president of the high-school’s student council. The prayer at the most recent convocation was delivered by a member of the School Board. AU wrote to the district and asked that it ensure that future convocations are free of prayers or other religious content. The school district agreed with this request, and also conducted a legal seminar for school administrators on issues of religion in the public schools.
