Peshtigo School District
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education respects the privacy rights of parents and their children. No student shall be required, as a part of the school program or the District's curriculum, without prior written consent of the student (if an adult, or an emancipated minor) or, if an unemancipated minor, his/her parents, to submit to or participate in any survey, analysis, or evaluation that reveals information concerning:

 A.political affiliations or beliefs of the student or his/her parents;

 B.mental or psychological problems of the student or his/her family; behavior or attitudes;

 D.illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating or demeaning behavior;

 E.critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships;

 F.legally recognized privileged and analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers;

 G.religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or his/her parents; or

 H.income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such a program).

The District Administrator shall ensure that procedures are established whereby parents may inspect any materials created by a third party used in conjunction with any such survey, analysis, or evaluation before the survey/evaluation is administered or distributed by the school to the student. The parent will have access to the survey/evaluation within a reasonable period of time after the request is received by the building principal.

For purposes of this policy, the term "parent" includes a legal guardian or other person standing in loco parentis (such as grandparent or stepparent with whom the child lives, or a person who is legally responsible for the welfare of the child).
