WisWatchdog: Can a school district decide how Catholic a school is?

St. Augustine School, Hartford, WI
A private school in Richfield, Wisconsin, and the parents of three students are taking Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Tony Evers and the Friess Lake School District to court over the question of who gets to decide if the school is Catholic or not.

The lawsuit, filed April 8 in Waukesha County Circuit Court by attorneys with the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, alleges violations of the Free Exercise Clause and Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment in the U.S. Constitution.

St. Augustine is an independent school that, while it teaches Catholic doctrine, is incorporated separately from the archdiocese and has its own board of directors and bylaws. It is not part of the Catholic school system.
