SOUTHLAKE, Texas (KTRK) -- A parent in north Texas tested the "In God We Trust" sign law for Texas schools.

The state passed a law in 2021 that says public schools must display signs featuring the national motto if the signs are received as donations from a private entity or purchased with donated money.

SB 797, which applies to schools, universities, and the like, states the sign must be displayed in a conspicuous place, has to be framed or on durable poster board, and must include an American flag.

A Christian-conservative cellphone provider donated signs to Carroll ISD, which is in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

On Monday, a parent in that school district attempted to donate additional "In God We Trust" signs written in Arabic and decorated with rainbow colors.

The school board president informed him that schools already have enough posters, but that parent wasn't buying the explanation.
