Areas residents are becoming aware of this fund through publicity involving the church and large donation to Brookland Baptist Church Northeast from a family.
When was this venture approved by the Richland 2 School Board? Or was it?
The type of venture cannot just be fired up by the superintendent, because it could involve liability on the part of the school district and possible disclosure of personal information pertaining to students, including minors.
One media article mentioned $50,000 from the church to help homeless students. Under what provision might the District provide information to the church about any student, homeless or otherwise?
Perhaps someone will enlighten readers here of a formalized agreement with the District that the board members have approved?
