Satanic request prompts schools to restrict banners on fences

The devil has resurfaced as an agitator in Palm Beach County schools.

Last year, a Boca Raton Middle School teacher installed a Satanic pentagram in a public park in Boca Raton, spurring some parents to seek the instructor’s removal.

At around the same time, an atheism activist sought to place a banner advertising the Church of Satanology on a fence at Boca Raton High School. The school district responded by temporarily banning all new fence signs that advertised religious institutions.

On Wednesday, the school board discussed making that policy permanent and also banning political banner ads and any signs deemed controversial. The district will decide whether banners are controversial on a case-by-case basis, said district spokeswoman Kathy Burstein. SUN SENTINEL
