Guidelines for notification of students and parents.
(a) The State Board of Education shall develop and make available guidelines
that may be used by the public elementary and secondary schools within this
State to give appropriate notice of the following to students and their parents
or legal guardians:
(1) Which, if any, of the courses taught at the
school ordinarily require or allow the student to perform, participate in, or observe dissection.
(2) Whether or not the school makes available to
students the opportunity to complete an alternative project.
(b) When offering high school students an opportunity to choose
between dissection or an alternative project, teachers should encourage the
students to take into consideration the expectations and requirements of the
colleges and graduate programs that they may be interested in attending.
