Ohio School District Unanimously Votes to Discontinue Holding Graduation Ceremonies at Church

Graduation pdCANTON, Ohio –– Members of an Ohio school board have voted unanimously to discontinue holding its graduation ceremonies at a local church following pressure from a nationally-recognized atheist activist organization. As previously reported, in both 2012 and 2013, Hoover High School in Canton held its commencement ceremony at Faith Family Church, a large church with seating for over 4,000 people.  However, earlier this year, a parent complained about the location to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), which in turn wrote a letter to the district, alleging that officials were violating the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. “This practice is unconstitutional because it forces graduating students and their family and friends wishing to participate in, view or celebrate the graduation to enter a church to do so,” the organization wrote. “Moreover, this practice shows Hoover High School’s endorsement of the Christian religion.” FFRF then requested that the district “select a more appropriate, secular location” for the event, and officials expressed their consideration of moving the graduation ceremonies to the Canton Civic Center.
