no tax dollars used to fund bible history elective courses

Bible in the Schools pledges to steward all funds with the highest level of integrity, accountability, and wise stewardship. Thank you for your generosity, partnership, and trust.

Bible History teachers are funded entirely through private contributions from local individuals, businesses, faith-based entities, and foundations. No tax dollars are used to fund this for-credit, elective for public school students. Hamilton County Schools will be reimbursed in July 2019 for a projected $1.5 million for the complete costs of the county-wide Bible History program in 25 schools during the 2018-2019 school year. Included in reimbursement costs are: teacher salaries, all benefits, taxes, classroom supplies, ongoing teacher professional development, and the costs of a full-time Bible History Program Coordinator.
