PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Pennridge School District says it will not take any action against School Board Vice President Joan Cullen. She was seen at last week’s Capitol Hill rally in social media images and without a face mask.

The district released a statement, reading in part, “The first amendment to the United States Constitution generally prohibits any governmental limitation on any individual’s personal right of free speech, especially of their private time. With respect to questions regarding removal of that Board member, school districts have no authority under Pennsylvania school code to remove board members based on the exercise of their first amendment rights.”
