(105 ILCS 112/15)
Alternative student projects.
A school may excuse a student
enrolled in a course in which students are ordinarily expected to perform,
participate in, or observe dissection who objects for any reason to performing,
participating in, or observing that dissection and instead allow the student to
complete an alternative project. The alternative project should be nonpunitive
and should be reasonably chosen to provide the student, through means other
than dissection, with knowledge similar to that expected to be gained by other
students in the course who perform, participate in, or observe the dissection.
The alternative project should be consistent with any guidelines for
alternative projects that have been adopted by the State Board of Education.
