PREAMBLE TO STUDENT HANDBOOK
Students have a fundamental right to free public education. Students have a corresponding responsibility to join with other members of the school community in establishing a climate for learning within the school. The student handbook represents portions of school policies and guidelines that are essential to the efficient operation of the school district summarizing basic rights and responsibilities for students at South Milwaukee High School. These rights and responsibilities are complex issues, so this handbook should only be considered a guide; it is not a final statement of student's legal rights.
