Title Guidelines for Alternatives to Animal Dissection
Document ID Instruction
Summary Pursuant to House Bill 1018, the 2004 General Assembly amended the Code of Virginia to include ยง 22.1- 200.01 directing the Board of Education to establish guidelines to be implemented by local school divisions regarding alternatives to animal dissection. The Board of Education recognizes that divergent opinions may exist about the role of animal dissection as a means of achieving certain instructional goals in the biological sciences. Therefore, in order to ensure the integrity of the instructional program, while respecting legitimate objections to animal dissections, the Alternatives to Animal Dissection Guidelines must be observed. These guidelines will apply to all public schools.
