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.
