San Angelo school administrators are responding to a letter from a Wisconsin-based foundation called "Freedom From Religion" following a complaint from a local parent.

The parent contacted the Wisconsin group challenging the long-standing tradition of prayer at school graduations in San Angelo.

A "Freedom From Religion" attorney sent this letter to San Angelo school district administrators in September questioning the practice.

An SAISD spokesman said that both federal and state law and local school district policy do not  prohibit religious or non-religious speech.

"We do have a checks and balances in place to make sure that all of our campuses in those types of ceremonies they know exactly what our kiddos are allowed to say as it relates to religion, what falls under the first amendment and those types of things," said Derrick Jackson, Director of Communications for San Angelo ISD.

Jackson says district administrators are reviewing concerns raised in the letter which specifically references invocations during Lake View and Central High School graduation ceremonies over the past four years.
