District drops religious assemblies (March 8, 2016)

Shelby County School District in Alabama is taking steps to ensure no further inappropriate religious assemblies occur in its schools.

Presenters from Word of Life Redemption were permitted to hold assemblies at Montevallo High School and Montevallo Middle School on Feb. 12. The group lists its mission as “to influence students in schools and youth groups throughout the nation and to ‘make a difference’ in today’s youth culture through music, drama, and worship that glorifies God and brings people to the cross.”

FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover wrote the district on March 2, and on March 8, Superintendent Randy Fuller responded, noting that the district considered the incident a serious matter and was already addressing it with administrators.
