Student Rights

Pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and Wisconsin Statutes, Section 118.125 students are entitled to inspect and review those records, files, documents and other materials containing information directly related to them, which are maintained by the Sheboygan Area School District. Students may challenge information contained in records which they consider inaccurate or misleading. Students may request that documents which they feel are inaccurate or misleading be removed from their file or amended. If this request is denied an appeal may be made to the Director of Pupil Services or the student may place a written explanation of his/her challenge in his/her file.

The following information may be made available to the public unless otherwise restricted by the student and/or the student’s family. This restriction should be made in writing to the building principal each year. Directory information on students or graduates for news release in the case of awards, recognition, honor roll, printed programs, or other public information materials will be released. Directory information includes a student’s name, picture, date and place of birth, dates of attendance, awards received, extracurricular activities, and the school most recently attended by the student. No information other than those items listed above will be released without specific written permission except as provided by law.


NON-DISCRIMINATION

The Sheboygan Area School District does not discriminate on the basis or age, handicap, marital or parental status, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. It is the student’s right to free, equal and non-discriminatory treatment in regard to participation in any course in the curriculum, school-sponsored organization, extracurricular programs, occupational training, or any education program or activity operated by the school-without restrictions based on sex, race, religion, ethnic origin, economic status, handicap, or for any other reason except as provided by law or by requirements reasonably related to the purpose of the activity.
