JEF - Release Time For Religious Practice

The Board will permit students, with the written consent of their parents, to receive moral or religious instruction at a suitable place away from the school, as designated by the religious group.

Students will be excused from school for such purposes no more than one hour per week.

The Superintendent is instructed to establish regulations, governing the attendance of students and their reporting for such instruction.

Students enrolled in the district normally will not be released from school for private instruction in music, gymnastics, or other activity. The discretion of the building principal, however, may be exercised in unique or unusual circumstances.
