Conn. School District Cans Graduations at Church

Ad Feedback

A Connecticut school district will no longer hold graduation ceremonies in churches.

The Enfield Board of Education made that decision to settle a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

The groups sued the district in 2010, saying some parents objected to holding graduations at a church where banners read "Jesus Christ Is Lord" and "I am GOD."

Before settling the lawsuit, the school board said it used the church because it offered enough space at the right price.
