An issue of religious promotion by a teacher and coach has been corrected in the Brighton 27J School District in Colorado.
A district community member alerted FFRF that a biology teacher and coach at Brighton High School was sending emails from his official district account with a religious signature line. One email included the message: “‘Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not stray from it.’ Proverbs 22:6.”
FFRF Staff Attorney Chris Line wrote to Superintendent Chris Fiedler, asking him to ensure that religious email signatures are removed so as not to create the impression of school endorsement of religion.
FFRF was assured by the Board of Education that the school principal would address the issue with the teacher.
