I understand that not all questions can be answered or Shen chooses not to answer them. So, I am going to try one more time before I present my questions at a Board meeting. Will students choosing to use the prayer room be monitored by a school official? At what Board meeting was the idea of prayer rooms discussed? Finally, as a former teacher of Shen, I was told that I could not display a Christmas tree, a menorah or any other religious symbol during that particular holiday season. Can you please tell me where I can find this policy?

A. It is a private office space that is not directly monitored other than the hall monitors. This is not a board decision, it is a building decision that fully complies with the Board policy and education laws.
