CASEWindebank v. Academy School District #20

Client Story


Share this page
Summary
Academy School District #20 policies and procedures defined “open time” in numerous places as consisting of lunchtime and the seminar period, an open period of the day equivalent to recess when students were free to spend time together, text on their phones, or discuss any other topic. Nonetheless, school officials claimed the “separation of church and state” required a ban on prayer and religious discussion during that period and that students could only engage in religious speech before or after school.
