Midlothian ISD and the Pledges of Allegiance

Screen Shot 2013-05-23 at 2.34.41 PMMidlothian ISD has not changed its policy and practices regarding the recitation of the pledges of allegiance to the United States and Texas flags.

The law states and the district requires that students stand and recite the pledges of allegiance to the United States and Texas flags once during the school day.

Specifically, the law (Board Policy EC (LEGAL)) reads, “The Board shall require students, once during each school day, to recite the pledges of allegiance to the United States and Texas flags.”

The MISD School Board and all District School Personnel support the law.

That same law (EC (LEGAL)) states, “On written request from a student’s parent or guardian, the District shall excuse the student from reciting a pledge of allegiance.”

Once a day, MISD students stand and recite the pledges of allegiance to the United States and Texas Flags. If there is a student who does not participate in the recitation of the pledges, it is because the district is following the law.

Nothing has changed.
