Wisconsin school will not lease space to church (January 17, 2019)

FFRF wrote to the school board president in the Tomorrow River School District to urge the school not to lease space in St. James and St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church in Amherst for classes as it was considering doing.

After reviewing records related to the selection of classroom space for Tomorrow River, FFRF Staff Attorney Ryan Jayne sent a letter urging the board to select one of the alternative secular classroom spaces.

Board President Mark Kryshak said that, at the time of his response, the board does not support leasing the church space and is looking at other options.
