Parent Rights and the Curriculum

The Hamilton School District recognizes the right of parents to inspect instructional materials and to deny their child’s participation in certain curricular activities according to state and federal laws and regulations. Reasonable accommodations for examinations and other academic requirements may be made because of a student’s sincerely held religious beliefs.

Parents or guardians may make requests to building principals regarding the above. If parents or guardians are not satisfied with the principal’s decision, they may appeal to the educational services and human resources director. Future appeals will go to the superintendent, the School Board and, if necessary, the state superintendent.
