Senior Counsel Vince McCarthy was contacted by Michelle Allen whose daughter attends LaBelle Elementary School in Cobb County, Georgia. Michelles daughter, Sarah Beth, is a fourth grade student at the elementary school and she wanted to extend personal invitations, that she prepared herself, for Vacation Bible School at her church.  Each of Sarah Beths invitations were specifically addressed to certain students and signed by Sarah Beth.  However, after asking permission to distribute the invitations, the Assistant Principal emphatically refused to allow the invitations to be given out solely because the invitations were for an event being held at a church. Mrs. Allen knew that this policy could not be correct because the Boy Scouts and community sports teams distribute information in this manner all the time.

Mrs. Allen read the materials available on our web site at www.aclj.org and armed with the information pressed the Assistant Principal to allow the activity to take place.  Simply by going to our web site and downloading the information, Mrs. Allen was able to have the School Board Policy changed.  After speaking with the Board of Education, the Assistant Principal found that the School Board permitted such distribution and Sarah Beth would be permitted to distribute her invitations yesterday.  Not only will Sarah Beth be able to distribute her invitations, but other students in other schools that have been denied permission to distribute Vacation Bible School invitations will also be able to distribute theirs as well.

Mrs. Allen told our staff that the victory in this matter was due to our web site information that she found so helpful.  With the click of the web, this matter was resolved.  If you want information about your rights or any other questions, visit us at www.aclj.org.
