Autauga County Superintendent Spence Agee said Thursday students do not need to provide a Social Security number to participate in activities like football, cheerleading or band.
Earlier Thursday Southern Poverty Law Center Attorney Caren Short sent Agee a letter saying requiring Social Security numbers would violate the U.S. Constitution and ignore rules established by federal and state education officials.
She says having the language on the forms would discourage immigrant children from participating.
Agee says the school system has never required Social Security numbers to participate in extracurricular activities.
