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.
