If the school uses Applied Scholastics, it is linked to CoS. The CoS Organization Charts show that the chain of command is
Church of Scientology International,
Executive Strata International,
International Management Executive Committee,
Flag Command Bureaux,
Applied Scholastics International
Also, Applied Scholastics is a kind of sister organization to Church of Scientology International in that (1) both pay royalties for trademarks and copyrights to Religious Tech. Corp and Church of Spiritual Tech, and (2) both are in 1993 IRS Closing Agreement .** The groups are non-legally linked because Sea Org runs the Continential Liaison Office which controls both the local Churches and ABLE, the corporation that controls Applied Scholastics. Since Sea Org is a vaporous brotherhood instead of a legal entity, CoS lawyers imagine this creates an illusion of separateness, but they are wrong. The two are deeply intertwined. When a school says they have no relation to Church of Scientology, the question should be, "Are you paying any CoS Corporation for Applied Scholastics or any other materials, and are you donating to any CoS Corporation?
