Superintendent pulls back on Twitter (February 2, 2016)

The superintendent of Dalton Local Schools in Ohio will no longer post religious messages on his official school Twitter feed, after FFRF Legal Fellow Ryan Jayne wrote the school district’s attorney a letter on Jan. 25, 2016. The tweets called for prayer, encouraged belief in God, and promoted Christian church events. “Anyone viewing this school-sponsored Twitter feed would understand that the superintendent is endorsing his personal religion over all others,” said Jayne.

Attorney Susan C. Hastings responded on Feb. 2 informing FFRF that the superintendent would establish a separate Twitter account for personal communications.
