JHCB - Released Time for Religious Instruction

Emery County School District

Policy: JHCB-Released Time for Religious Instruction

Date Adopted: 6 April 1988

Current Review I Revision: 4 March 1998


Religious belief and disbelief are matters of personal consideration rather than governmental authority. As such, government must observe neutrality in matters of religion, neither opposing nor promoting religion.

At the request of parents/guardians and the availability of courses, students may be released one period per day to study in the belief of their choice.

No credit or grade may be recorded on the permanent records of the student.
