Alabama school’s Christian promotion ends (January 12, 2017)

An Auburn, Ala., elementary school assured FFRF that it will not be promoting Christianity or a religious group.

Dean Road Elementary School distributed flyers and used social media postings to promote “All Pro Dad” events, which the school was hosting throughout the school year. All Pro Dad is a group that promotes “family values,” along with Christian prayer and worship.

FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover first wrote to Auburn City Schools Superintendent Karen DeLano on July 16, 2015, about the unlawful flyers. After several interactions, an attorney representing the school district replied to FFRF on Jan. 12 that there would not be any promotion or endorsement by the school of a religious organization.
