Religious education Deregistration

Students take part in the religious instruction of their confession. (In the school year 2018/2019, Protestant, Catholic, free-religious, Mennonite, Alevi and model testing of Islamic religious instruction will be offered in Rhineland-Palatinate. Religious education is a regular subject. The parents may refuse to participate in writing from the age of 14. The deregistration of underage pupils must be communicated to the parents. Students who do not participate in religious education attend ethics classes. Pupils of a religious community for which no religious instruction is established at the school, but who participate to a comparable extent in a course recognised by the school authority as corresponding, are exempt from the obligation to attend ethics classes.

Written statement

The deregistration from the religious submission must be made in writing.
