How to Start Released Time

We are dedicated to helping Christians bring word of God’s love and love of God’s Word to public school students. We equip local leaders to successfully propose and offer Released Time Bible classes for public school students; educate about constitutional and legal requirements for permissible religious programming, and encourage Christians to work together as the body of Christ.

In Ohio, Released Time programs are addressed by recently enacted legislation; see the law here.

Programs may be instituted once approved by majority vote of the local school board, as a cooperative arrangement between the schools and the community (See: “Public Schools and Religious Communities”).
