AU received a complaint about a variety of religion-promoting practices by the Frankfort Intermediate School, including: (1) broadcast of religious hymns over the loudspeaker during the holiday season; (2) incorporation of religious items and activities into multiple classrooms; (3) displaying a sign reading “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”; and (4) sending a letter home with students encouraging them to attend a back-to-school prayer rally at a church. AU wrote to the school district objecting to these practices, and received a response from the Superintendent indicating that the teachers responsible had been disciplined and that the principal at the time of the violations no longer worked at the school.
