The schools may not provide religious instruction, but may teach about religion, for example: the history of religion, comparative religion, scriptures as literature, the role of religion in the history of the United States or other countries, the religious aspects of holidays, religious influences on art, music, literature and social studies.
- The schools may celebrate the secular aspects of holidays, but may not observe holidays as religious events or promote or encourage through school activities such religious observances by students.
- Students may express their beliefs about religion in the form of homework, artwork, and other written and oral assignments free of discrimination based on the religious content of their submissions. Such home and classroom work should be judged by ordinary academic standards of substance and relevance, and against other legitimate educational standards of professional educators. (3-26-02)
