Freedom from Religion Foundation files new complaint against Catoosa Co. schools
RINGGOLD, Ga. —
Catoosa County schools now face complaints from the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF).
The Wisconsin-based group says Heritage High School's work with a local ministry violates the Constitution.
They named Ringgold High School in the complaint.
That's because some of the students make the cross-shaped flag stands the city uses for its bi-annual flag memorials.
Superintendent Denia Reese says the money students raised helped build a school for underprivileged children.
She says The system's attorney is thoroughly researching the allegations.
