The school district maintains student records for each student attending school in the district. State and federal laws require that the maintenance of such records assure confidentiality.
All records directly related to a student and maintained by the school district are pupil records. They include records maintained in any way, including but not limited to, written, printed or drawn material, computer storage media, video and audiotape, film, microfilm and microfiche. Records maintained for personal use by a teacher or other certified personnel and not available to others and psychological treatment records necessary for and available only to persons involved in the psychological treatment of the student are not considered pupil records. The district maintains the following types of student records:
Progress Records – grades, courses, attendance, immunization, extra curricular activities. These records are maintained for five years after the child ceases to be enrolled.
Behavioral Records – psychological tests, personality evaluations, records of conversations, written statements related to a pupil’s behavior, achievement and ability tests, and physical health records, other than immunization records or lead screening records, certain law enforcement officers’ records, and any other pupil records that are not progress records. Law enforcement records are maintained separately from other pupil records. Behavioral records are maintained for one year after the child graduates or ceases to be enrolled.
Pupil Physical Health Records – basic health information that includes the immunization card, an emergency medical card, a log of first aid and medicine administered to the pupil, an athletic permit card, health screening tests and other basic health information as determined by the state superintendent.
Directory Data – includes the student’s name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, photographs, degrees and awards received and the name of the school most recently attended.

2015 Wisconsin Act 55 under section 120.12(13) requires local school districts to notify parents/guardians of students enrolled in the school district of the student academic standards that will be in effect for the school year. Under Wisconsin State Statute 118, local school boards were required to adopt pupil academic standards in mathematics, science, reading and writing, geography, and history by August 1, 1998.
That being said, East Troy Community School District had adopted the Wisconsin Academic Standards since 1998 and any revisions made to them http://standards.dpi.wi.gov. All content areas in the East Troy Community School District are aligned to the Wisconsin Academic Standards that are supportive of preparing all students for college and or career readiness.
Please note that Standards are not the curriculum; they are performance expectations. The curriculum is the work of the district such as learning targets, assessments, activities, resources to be used, etc. All of which we continue to implement, update and revise. Finally, we continue to encourage each of you to visit http://eastttroy.buildyourowncurriculum.com/Public/Landing Grades.aspx toward understanding and sharing of the curriculum.

The District provides for the reasonable accommodation of a student’s sincerely held religious beliefs with regard to examinations and other academic requirements. State law permits children to be released from school for religious instruction. The Board neither recommends nor discourages student participation in such instruction. Students in the East Troy Community School District will be released for religious instruction outside the school grounds under the following conditions:
- The student must have written permission from his parent or guardian.
- Not more than one hour per day and three hours per week of school time be granted for religious instruction.
- The School Board may deny the privilege of released time to students who requested religious instruction but were absent from the instruction.
The School Board assumes no responsibility for transporting students to religious instruction and shall be released from all liability for a pupil who is absent from school in accordance with the rules set forth above. The process for receiving and resolving complaints about the accommodation of religious beliefs is described above in the Non-Discrimination Policy section.
The East Troy Board of Education encourages a strong partnership between the home, school and community. If student learning and growth are to take place, parents/guardians, students and school personnel must recognize their responsibilities to assure regular school attendance.
The East Troy Board of Education, in recognition of the statutory requirements for school attendance and the overwhelming public need for an educated society, believes school attendance should take precedence over non-school activities. In addition, Wisconsin Statutes requires every child between six and 18 years of age to be in school attendance unless he/she:
- Is excused temporarily for physical or mental reasons, or other reasons defined by the Board of Education
- Has graduated
- Has been authorized to attend an alternative educational program
- Has been excused by his/her parent/guardian prior to an absence in accordance with state law
It is the responsibility of any person having under his/her control such a child to ensure regular attendance during the full period and hours that school is in session until the end of the quarter or semester of the school year in which the child becomes 18 years of age. Any child who is 16 or 17 years of age may be excused from regular school attendance by the school board to a two or four-year college or technical college through the Youth Options Program. A student may also attend an adult high school diploma program at a technical college in lieu of high school if the student falls under the definition to be considered to be a Child at Risk. Further modifications may include:
- Modification within the child’s current academic program
- Abbreviated day
- Modified curriculum
- At school work-training program
- Gateway HSED
- Supervised school work-training program for credit
- Second Chance Programming
- Enrollment in an alternative public school, technical school program
- Enrollment in correspondence or Internet courses approved by the school
It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the school of student absences in accordance with established District procedures. When students are absent from school, parents/guardians assume full responsibility for their activities. It is the responsibility of the principal or designee to determine whether the absence is acceptable (excused) or not acceptable (unexcused).
It is the intent of the East Troy Community School District Student Attendance policy (431) to provide consistency throughout our district that meets all attendance provisions per Wisconsin Statutes, and to assist and intervene in a positive manner with the parents and or student to correct any attendance issues before issuance of “habitual truancy.”
In accordance with the requirements identified under Wisconsin Statutes 120.12 (5) and 121.02 (1) (i) and Wisconsin Administrative Code PI 8.01 (2) (i), the School District has taken appropriate steps to provide and maintain safe and healthful facilities. The East Troy Community School District will keep school buildings in good repair, suitably equipped and in safe and sanitary condition promote a positive learning environment.
As required in WI Stat. 118.075 (3) and (4), the School District maintains indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in schools with measures that include quality heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, moisture control, integrated pest management, cleaning and maintenance schedules, appropriate materials selection, routine building inspections by maintenance personnel, appropriate training of staff, and communication.

No student has an expectation of personal privacy in connection with their use of or content stored in, created, received or transmitted over any District or personally-owned electronic resource (Policy 443.8), unless such right is guaranteed by statute or other law.
The District believes that allowing students to use electronic devices for educational purposes at East Troy High School will expand and broaden student learning opportunities.

According to section 118.07(3) of the state statutes, each school district must provide the parents/guardians of students enrolled in grades 6 – 12 with information about meningococcal disease (commonly known as bacterial meningitis).
- Meningococcal bacteria can potentially be transmitted through close contact with an infected person through direct contact with respiratory and/or oral secretions from an infected person (for example, through sharing drinking containers or kissing)
- Meningococcal disease can be misdiagnosed as something less serious, because of early symptoms like high fever, severe headache, nausea, vomiting and stiff neck
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other leading medical organizations recommends that all 11 – 12 year olds be vaccinated with meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4). A booster shot is recommended for teens at age 16 to continue providing protection when their risk for meningococcal disease is highest.
