Issues in the district

Owasso Kids For Christ

In 2011, a children's prayer group, "Owasso Kids For Christ" filed a federal lawsuit against Owasso Public Schools for allegedly censoring their right to exercise its faith. The lawsuit came after the group distributed flyers at Northeast Elementary with its motto "“One Dream, One Vision, Reaching the World for Christ!" attached to them.[3] The district told the group it had to stop, as it contained "recruiting" elements, and that it was just following policy to not engage in discriminatory behavior.[4] The district and the group reached a settlement in April 2012 wherein the district paid the group $20,000 for legal fees. The district also altered its policy so that fliers are no longer sent out to parents of any organization.[5]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[9]
