Religion and Free Speech at School
OSSBA Staff Attorney Kim Bishop will discuss one of the important ongoing issues school administrators and board members deal with: religion and free speech. The most common religious activities that schools routinely have to deal with include prayer in school, material distribution to students, and requests to advertise on school property. We will review legal and policy considerations regarding religious activities on school premises while balancing and respecting the individual free speech rights of students.
Presented by Kim Bishop, OSSBA Staff Attorney
