Policies and Procedures
Discrimination, including harassment, may affect student achievement and well being. It may also have an impact on the entire school climate. As a result, it is imperative that school districts have responsive complaint procedures and pupil nondiscrimination policies.
Section PI 9.07 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code requires each school board file annually a pupil nondiscrimination compliance report with the Department of Public Instruction. The report for the 2014-15 school year (July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015) is due December 18, 2015.
The report is submitted electronically. All district administrators will be sent an email containing instructions and a link for submitting the required information.
The report requires the following information:
for School Years 2005-2006 through 2010-2011
Submitted on December 2, 2005, to the
U. S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs,
Amended January 31, 2006
