Elmbrook School District 'disappointed' by court ruling

July 24, 2012

The Elmbrook School District issued a statement today about a federal appeals court ruling that it violated the Constitution by holding past graduation ceremonies at Elmbrook Church.

Superintendent Mark Hansen said in the statement that while the district is "disappointed" with the ruling, Elmbrook "will continue to use the field house in the future. There is no further need for graduation ceremonies to be held at Elmbrook Church."

Hansen also noted the district is working with legal counsel to determine the next steps in resolving the case.

"Our primary focus as a district has always been to spend our time and resources on educating our students," he said.
