Ohio school will hold future events at secular locations (April 11, 2019)

Dalton Local Schools has been instructed by its attorneys to hold future events at secular locations, thanks to FFRF.

A local resident reported that the Dalton High School Choralation group performed at Cornerstone Community Church and previously performed at the Dalton United Methodist Church during its worship service.

FFRF Legal Fellow Chris Line wrote to Superintendent Jim Saxer urging the district to respect the rights of conscience of all families and no longer hold events at churches and instead select public facilities for all future events.

The district’s attorney assures that the superintendent has “instructed the employee that school related performances should take place in secular venues.”
