Notice: Non-Regulatory Guidance for LEAs -- Animal Dissection

The purpose of this guidance is to provide Local education agencies (LEA) with instructions for properly implementing choice for District students in the animal dissection application within science instruction. Although schools and teachers are free to use dissection as a part of their lesson plan, LEAs may provide students who do not wish to dissect an animal for moral or religious reasons with an alternative lesson that accomplishes the same level of mastery. For additional information, please review the non-regulatory guidance for animal dissection opt-out choice for District students.
