Support Policy
 

There is no literary product, scientific fact or finding, writing requirement, or mathematical process that could not be completed unless a student is exposed objectionable, offensive, controversial, profane or sexually explicit materials.  However, if the Board of Education feels that it should not limit the Academic Freedom of the teacher to use such materials, neither should it limit the Academic Freedom of the student and/or the student's parents to refuse them.
