3027 Resolution of Conflicts Between Parents Over School Issues

It is in students’ best educational interests to have parents work cooperatively with each other and with school personnel regarding their children’s education.  In certain circumstances, parents disagree with each other regarding their children’s education or other issues involved with the school district.  Though such disagreements typically occur with separated or divorced parents, this regulation is not limited to those circumstances.

  1. Court Orders.
    School personnel will neither interpret nor enforce court orders governing the relations between separated or divorced parents unless the court order terminates the parental rights of a parent or limits a parent to supervised visitation with minor children.

  2. Obtaining Records and Conferring with Teachers.
    All parents can obtain their children’s records and meet with their children’s teachers regardless of custody or visitation rights unless a court enters an order otherwise or their parental rights have been terminated.  The district will not schedule separate parent-teacher conferences absent extraordinary circumstances.

  3. Accessing a Child at School/Picking Up a Child.
    Any parent whose parental rights have not been terminated or limited to supervised visitation may contact his or her child while at school or pick a child up from school at any time. School staff will neither interpret nor enforce visitation schedules contained in any court order to which the school district is not a party.
