A southern Colorado school district accused of promoting evangelical Christian ideals has reached a settlement with a teacher who filed a lawsuit claiming religious discrimination.

Robert Basevitz, who is Jewish, filed a suit in May saying that the Fremont RE-2 School District endorsed religion by allowing a church to operate in Florence High School for Sunday services, morning prayer and Bible study and serve pizza in a classroom.
