Under the settlement, which was finalized with federal court filings on Wednesday, the charter school based in Loomis will no longer insist on putting a disclaimer on flyers or other invitations between students. Attorneys with Pacific Justice Institute filed suit against the school late last year on behalf of a student identified as “Esther” who was called to the office multiple times and scolded for giving a fellow student an invitation to a Christian event. Because the invitation was given outside of class time, the school had no involvement with the student-to-student interaction. After a parent complained, however, the school insisted that Esther bring any such invitations to the office to receive an official disclaimer.
