INH-R: Alternatives to Dissection

I: Instruction

All science teachers must be informed by the Superintendent of Schools of the policy regarding alternatives to animal dissection. 

Science teachers will inform students of their right to choose an alternative to animal dissection in advance of the activity.  

The teacher, along with the principal, is responsible for providing comparable and viable alternatives when a student chooses not to participate in a dissection for religious or ethical reasons.  Alternatives may include the use of books, videotapes, models, films, and computers.
