PARENTS’ RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  

When a parent or guardian registers a child for school, that registration document becomes the official and binding educational contract between the parent and the school district. The parent is obligated to send the student to school and the school district is obligated to provide the student with an education through grade twelve (12).

This educational contract is not completed until the child has graduated from grade twelve. The contract can be terminated only by official withdrawal or removal from the school district. As the official client of the school district, the parent is entitled to all the rights and is bound by all responsibilities of the educational contract.

Those rights include:

  1. The right to know the progress of the student.
  2. The right to have access to the records of the student.
  3. The right to confer with the school district personnel regarding the performance of the student.

 

The responsibilities include:

  1. The responsibility to see that the student attends school every day.
  2. The responsibility to see that the student abides by all the rules and regulations of the school district.
  3. The responsibility to confer with school district personnel regarding the performance of the student.
