Automated phone system misuse rectified (March 1, 2016)

The Jacksonville City Schools in Alabama has assured FFRF that the district’s automated phone system will not again be used to inform parents of religious events.

Last summer, community members reportedly received calls and text messages from the school system to inform them of and invite them to prayer walks being held at the district.

“Future use of this phone system will be appropriate and within the guidelines of the law,” Superintendent Mark Peterson wrote in response.
