In Wisconsin, it is the role of the local school board to establish written policies, procedures, and rules for the operation of the schools within the District, to adopt textbooks, and to provide adequate materials and texts which reflect the cultural diversity and pluralistic nature of the American society.

In addition, the District shall not discriminate in the selection and evaluation of instructional materials on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, gender identify, gender expression or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability. Discrimination complaints shall be processed in accordance with established procedures.

Educational Materials Review Committee Overview


The Board of Education, as the governing body of the District, is legally responsible for all educational materials utilized within the instructional program of the Appleton Area School District. The selection of educational materials is delegated to the professionally trained and certified personnel employed by the school system. The responsibility for coordinating and maintaining qualitative standards in the selection process rests with the Assessment, Curriculum, and Instruction (ACI) department.

In the event that an adult resident or employee of the Appleton Area School District should object to a Board of Education adopted educational material and the objection is not satisfactorily addressed at the school level, the objection will be addressed by the AASD Educational Materials Review Committee. This committee is composed of citizens, parents, professional staff members and students. The task of the Committees is to review the material in question and provide written recommendation(s) to the Superintendent of School regarding its continued use in the District.
