Club won’t receive preferential treatment (December 1, 2016)

After receiving a complaint that the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Montana’s Rockwood School District was receiving special treatment in its advertising, FFRF Legal Fellow Madeline Ziegler contacted Superintendent Eric Knost.

The club was given preferential treatment by being displayed on a permanent board at Eureka High School, a privilege that other clubs were not allowed.

Knost replied on Dec. 1 informing FFRF that Rockford school administrators would be reminded that religious-related student groups are not to be given preference over other noncurricular student groups.
