Howdy Folks,

    This February we have two new in-school activities.  The first
[I.]is called The Liberty Counsel's 
MODEL SCHOOL BOARD POLICY REGARDING RELIGION.
    The second [II.] is The Students' 6th Annual  Day of Purity  that will be observed on Valentines Day, February 14,

I.     This month's eNewsLetter concerns the lack of school board policies encompassing "The Freedom Of Religious Expression In Public Schools".  Many School Boards do not have a comprehensive policy that would prevent a uninformed school employee from oppressing their K-12 children's freedom of religious expression.  If they have a comprehensive policy it will help the whole school community to know what is legal.
       You do not have to have a child in your local school to sign or promote this petition because you have standing as a tax payer.  Typically 50% of your property taxes go to your local school board!  Remember the school kids are soon going to be your neighbors.  You should have some input as to what they are going to be.  You definitely can petition The School Board to adopt an official, comprehensive school board policy regarding religion.
       This first link is for your use; it is an updated generic Petition form.:  http://Hisways.org/howto/Petition-Freedom-Of-Religious-Expression.htm , [ file ].  This is the same but in a more printable PDF format:  http://Hisways.org/howto/Petition-Freedom-Of-Religious-Expression.pdf ,  'Permission is granted to print, copy and distribute this form'.  
       This link is The Liberty Counsel's MODEL SCHOOL BOARD POLICY REGARDING RELIGIONhttp://www.lc.org/resources/sbpolicy.htm  .  We  recommend that the Model Policy be submitted with the petition to the school board for approval as their official comprehensive school board policy regarding religion.  By submitting this Model, the 'comprehensive' is accomplished and the legality of it can be defended by The Liberty Counsel who are sensitive to the oppression of religious liberties on campus.  The school board attorney can eMail or call The Liberty Counsel, (800) 671-1776, with any concerns and get a little free legal advice on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.   [Hints for application.  Try to get both signatures and registration numbers of the voters in your school district.  Registered voters are persuasive petitioners.  Try to get enough signatures to approximately equal 1%  or more of the school board's student-parent population.   When presenting the petition and Model Policy to the school board take some time to read into the record some of the high lights of the Model Policy.  Follow up on the progress once a quarter or twice a year.  It is worth it.] [See our local progress in III. below.]

II.     The Students' 5th Annual  Day of Purity  that will be observed on Valentines Day, February 14fly the flag see:  http://www.lc.org/dayofpurity.htm .  A Planning Guide is available and resources up to college level, including this one page document briefly describing 9 STD's (PDF) i.e. nine reasons for intelligent people to abstain.


III.     The two year anniversary of our local citizen petition to The PC School Board is coming up in May.  This link is a progress page of high lights for reference.   Summary re: Progress of Community Petition to Pinellas County School Board Regarding The Liberty Counsel's 'Model Policy On Religion'.  [ http://hisways.org/about/2008ModelSB-ReligionPolicy.htm ]
 
P.S. 
This is a sample portion of the Petition that we used shown as an example of the petition link above.

     PETITION FOR FREEDOM OF RELIGIOUS EXPRESSION IN PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLS
We, the undersigned, believe there should be freedom for the students to express their religious beliefs and customs in our public schools and no prohibitions of the students’ "free exercise thereof", as stated in the First Amendment of our Federal Constitution which protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference.

Religious songs and symbols should be allowed for inclusion as part of a wider celebration of Christmas, which is recognized as a national holiday in America. We have not seen this freedom of religion in the use of Christmas carols and students’ art. Therefore, we petition the Pinellas County School Board to correct this discriminatory practice through the adoption of an official policy such as:  The MODEL SCHOOL BOARD POLICY REGARDING RELIGION: http://www.lc.org/resources/sbpolicy.htm.
