FFRF pushes for secular school supplies (August 18, 2017)

FFRF has ensured that an elementary school in Texas will no longer be partnering with a religious organization for school supplies.

It was reported to FFRF that Glen Rose Elementary School in Glen Rose, Texas, had partnered with a Christian organization, School Tool Box, to sell school supplies to parents through the organization’s website. The school was advertising School Tool Box’s services and, indirectly, its religious mission.

FFRF Associate Attorney Sam Grover sent a letter to the Glen Rose Independent School District superintendent to ensure that the school district would not continue to illegally promote religion, encouraging Glen Rose Elementary to partner with secular organizations in the future.

A legal representative of the school district replied on Aug. 18, informing FFRF that the district would request that Glen Rose Elementary School partner with different, non-religious organizations going forward.
