AU received a complaint about a "Campus Life" religious club at Willow Glen Middle School that was being run at lunch-time by non-school personnel. These non-school persons were approaching students, distributing candy and stickers, and soliciting student participation in the club. We wrote to the school district, explaining that this behavior raised constitutional red flags and asking the district to investigate. They responded that it was against school policy for an outsider to run a student club and that they had been unaware that this was going on. They agreed to stop non-school personnel from running the Campus Life club and to ensure that there will be no further solicitation of non-participating students to join the religious club.
