A Ross County principal is responding to a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union accusing the school of violating a student's First Amendment rights.
A student was registering voters and collecting signatures for a petition in support of gay marriage at a Zane Trace High School football game last month, when a deputy asked him to stop because of complaints from the crowd.
Zane Trace Principal Todd Holdren said that the school's policy does not prohibit students from petitioning at athletic events.
Haridman said that people are welcome to distribute political literature at athletic events, but per district policy, they are asked to make arrangements ahead of time.
The ACLU said that the organization and the student's family were satisfied with the resolution and the school's response.
