5040 Prayer in the Schools

It is the policy of the Board of Education to not prevent, or otherwise deny participation in, constitutionally protected prayer in the District's schools, consistent with guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education, and applicable judicial decisions interpreting the religion clauses of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

This policy supersedes any other Board policy that might be inconsistent with it.
