I think we can be fairly certain there's more to the story...
Better be, anyway...or someone is going to be very rich.
Today, a compromise to keep the Delta County School District out of the courtroom means that pamphlets promoting other, non-Christian views will be offered in the same manner the Gideon Bibles were displayed back in December. Publications including “The Satanic Children’s BIG BOOK of Activities,” “Why Jesus?” and “Top 10 Public School-State Church Violations and How to Stop Them” will be free for students at middle and high schools today.
The agreement calls for the district to offer the materials from 30 minutes before school starts until 15 minutes after classes end, allowing students access during passing periods and lunchtime. The district’s policy on allowing non-academic materials to be distributed allows for these publications to be offered, though the fallout from the Bible incident has district officials considering a policy change to alter the open-door policy.
The district brokered a deal with the nonprofit Freedom From Religion Foundation to allow the distribution of the non-Christian materials in an effort to avoid litigation for allowing the Bibles to be available to students during school, which the organization said is unconstitutional.

But fake news is good when it is against Trump or Christians or guns, basically anything promoting your progressive bias. Right?
The WCAF contacted the district after a parent of a middle-schooler, Aileen Harmon, said her daughter was harassed by other students for not taking a free Gideon Bible from a table in the library on Dec. 18, according to the group’s Facebook posts. The FFRF became involved after the freethinkers group contacted the district, Landman said.

There are some serious problems with this article. It says they almost immediately dropped her grades to F's but then say that it dropped from 98% to 70%. 70% is far from an F. It's like only halfway to an F. So that discrepancy alone leads me to believe that this article is a bunch of bunk.
