AUSTIN -- Two organizations, Liberty Institute and Texas Values, claimed that the Austin Independent School District discouraged students from going Christmas caroling on their own time.
KVUE dug deeper into the story and learned that some community members questioned whether it's appropriate at Anderson High School.
Principal Donna Houser said the Anderson choir does it every year as a fundraiser, and that they only visit homes that invite them.
"AISD has always been pretty clear about trying to separate any kind of appearance that you might be favoring one religion over another, or even religion over non-religion," Houser said. "We're supposed to be completely neutral on that."
Houser also said that the choir doesn't only sing Christian songs, but they also sing secular and Hanukkah songs. The caroling did get canceled this year, not because of the complaint, but because an ice storm hit Austin the weekend it was scheduled.
