Americans United for Separation of Church and State, an advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., has filed a federal lawsuit in an attempt to stop Elmbrook School District from holding its high school graduation ceremonies at Elmbrook Church. The group argues that holding a public ceremony in a religious setting is unfair to non-Christian community members.
In February, Gibson said Brookfield East and Central high schools still planned to hold the graduations at the church in June. But the district has been planning to move the ceremonies back to new gymnasiums on campus next school year.
Should the district move this year's ceremonies to location other than the church?
