The use of religious symbols such as a cross, menorah, ores- cent, Star of David, creche, snn- bole of native American religtous or otber symbols that are apmof a religious holiday are permitted as a teaching aid or resource pro- vided such symbols as displayed as an example of the cultural and religious heritage of the holiday and are temporary in nature. As for religion in the curricu- lum-religious institutions and arientatious are central to haman • At the regular USD 279 school + board meeting last Monday + evening a policy was adopted, following a 4-3 vote, regarding religious beliefs and holidays. It is accepted that no religious belief or non-belief should be promoted by the district or its employees and none should be , disparaged. Instead the district , should encourage all studonts and , staff members to appreciate and to be tolerant of each other's reli- gious views. The district should utilize its ' .OptxYrtunity tofosterunderstand- mg and mutual respect among students and parents, whether it involves race, culture, economic background or religious belief. In that spirit of tolerance, stu- denis and staff members should be excused from participating in practices which are contrary to : their religious beliefs unless there are clear sssues of overriding con- corn that would prevent it. The board recognizes that one of its educational goals is to ad- and appreciation of the role that religious heritage has played in the social, cultural and historical development of civilization. •: out the year which have a reli- ; gious and a secular basis may be observed in the public schools. The historical and contemporary values and the origin of religious eas. Such studies should never foster any particular religious te- nets or demean any religious be- liefs. Student-initiated expssions to questions or assignments which reflect their beliefs or nonqJ˘liefs about a religious theme shall be accommodated. For example, stu- dents are free to express religious belief or non-belief in composi- tions art forms, music, speech and debate. Traditions are a cherished part of the community life and the district expresses an interest in maintaining those traditions which have had a significance to the community. While recogniz- ing the significance of traditions, the board of education believes that its dedication ceremonies and commencement exrcises should be secular in nature. Inspirational addresses, which do not promote religion, may be permitted at such Mrs, Abram and Mr. Scheef have been approached in regards to teaching. Their salaries would come from the STEP money.
