CITATION POLICY

105.2 EXCUSE FROM INSTRUCTION/ASSESSMENT

Section 1. Purpose

Parents/guardians have the right to have their children excused from specific

instruction if that instruction conflicts with their religious beliefs. Students age 18

and older also may request to be excused from instruction that conflicts with their

religious beliefs.

Section 2. Responsibility

Requests must be made in writing to the Assistant Superintendent of Elementary or

Secondary Education, signed and state the specific elements of instruction from

which the student is to be excused. The request must be submitted at least six (6)

school days in advance of the instruction occurring and include the reason for

requesting the excusal. The District will send copies of the request for inclusion in

the students’ cumulative folder.

All students excused from instruction are required to achieve the academic

standards established by the District and the state and those necessary for

graduation. The District will determine replacement educational activities. It is the

responsibility of the student to request permission to leave class when the specific

instruction to which the parent has objected is to be presented, and when approval

has been granted.
