ROCK HILL, SC (WJZY) - Band, Art and Choir are all normal electives to make well-rounded students but what about bible studies?
Rock Hill School Board members are considering a new policy that would allow middle school students to have religious study as an elective during the school day.
Under this proposal, parents would have to give permission for the student to take part and the religious group would have to gain approval from the district. The program must take place off campus so it doesn't violate the "Separation of church and state" policy.
The School Board and the Rock Hill School Ministries are looking for more input from parents before the school board takes a final vote on Monday.
You can find that survey here.
