Religious Statements & Bible Verses on Websites & Emails
It has been the practice of Wylie ISD to allow faculty and staff members the ability to include personal statements expressing their professional joy on their individual webpages located on the District’s website. It has recently come to the District’s attention that many of these statements include bible verses and/or references to “Jesus Christ” or other similarly specific religious references. While it is the District’s position that generic statements that include use of the word “God” are permissible, these other more specific statements are potentially in violation of law and Board of Trustee policy as they could be interpreted by students, parents, staff, and community members to be improper proselytizing and advancement of religion by the Wylie ISD. As such, faculty and staff members are hereby directed to refrain from using language that includes bible verses and/or references to “Jesus Christ” or other similarly specific religious references.
