Opt-In/Opt-Out procedures have been developed by the district. Parents can expect the use of consistent standards in all district schools for opting-in and opting-out of programs, events, or activities.
Students will not intentionally be made to feel different, nor will parents, choosing to exercise their right to opt-in or -out, be criticized for their decision. Littleton Public Schools places a high value on maintaining strong partnerships with parents in monitoring the use of potentially controversial instructional materials in classrooms. In accordance with Board of Education Policy, parents can expect to be informed of plans to use instructional materials that may reasonably be considered controversial.
Primary instructional materials require approval by the Board of Education before classroom use. Students may be asked to read a fiction or nonfiction book from the district's approved literature list. The district has an approval process teachers must follow to add titles to to the K–12 Multiple Copy Literature List.
