I am shocked that my child sings such religious songs in high school east chorus and choraliers. Is there not some guidelines to restrict singing about such Christian music?

A. BOE policy 8360 speaks to religious content in schools.  In accordance with that policy, religious music may be taught for it’s musical value as long as criteria attached to 8360 is satisfied.  Vivaldi’s Gloria, which was performed at the most recent HS choral concert, is standard high school choral repertoire and exposed students to the form of a major work, the style characteristics of Baroque music and afforded the opportunity for our advanced singers to perform arias from this time period.
