General Concerns and Questions
My son wants to attend religious school because part of his desire is to become more a part of his community. Our church is one of the only integrated settings where he is welcomed and embraced.
Regional Center said we can’t pay for religious school with SDP funds because they can’t pay for anything religious. Although it’s called religious school it’s a very mainstream church and it’s mostly just a social recreational opportunity. They acknowledge religous holidays, like Christmas and sing together, but it’s not fanatical at all.
They said if it were a social group through the church, it would be allowed, but because it’s called religious school, there’s a strict policy on not paying for religious activities.
Any information on this separation of church and state?
