ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - At the center of the controversy is the trailer parked on the property at Haley Elementary School in Fort Wayne.

The family of a student claims the religion courses violate the student's constitutional rights, and is suing Fort Wayne Community Schools to halt the program.

The weekday religious education program, open to students in the third, fourth and fifth grades in Fort Wayne Community Schools and other districts in Allen County, is operated by the Associated Churches.

You may remember that the Huntington Community School Corporation was sued for a similar program.

The program is continuing there, but off school property.
