The information in this handbook will acquaint you with District 15 and answer some of the questions you may have. This handbook is only a summary of Board of Education policies governing the District. The complete School District 15 Board of Education Policy Manual is available for public review at the District office and is also posted on the District 15 website at

    Although this handbook addresses general questions about the District as a whole, some programs and procedures may differ from school to school. The differences are due to the size and location of the building, the grades housed in the building, the facilities available, and the programs conducted in the school. Principals will let you know about any changes that pertain to their buildings.

    State and federal laws require school districts to notify parents and students about certain rights, responsibilities, and procedures. You will find that information in Chapter 12 of this handbook. This handbook may be amended during the year without notice to parents.

    This handbook is not meant to take the place of personal communication between the home and the school. Please feel free to call your child’s school if you have any questions on programs or procedures.
