Who We Are
We are citizens of Anoka-Hennepin School District 11 who want to ensure that our schools remain focused on core academics and that parental rights are respected and upheld in the school environment.
To motivate and equip citizens with current and accurate information about issues and initiatives that could detract from the school’s primary focus of educating our children in the key areas of basic communication, mathematics, science and social studies or that could undermine the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their own children.
- The fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their own children as cited in Minnesota State Statute 120A.22 Subdivision 1 which states:
Parental responsibility. The parent of a child is primarily responsible for assuring that the child acquires knowledge and skills that are essential for effective citizenship.
- The role of the public schools to impart knowledge and skills in the primary educational areas cited in Minnesota State Statute 120A.22 Subdivision 9 which states:
Curriculum. Instruction must be provided in at least the following subject areas:
(1) basic communication skills including reading and writing, literature, and fine arts;
(2) mathematics and science;
(3) social studies including history, geography, and government; and
(4) health and physical education.
- The right of students to be educated in a learning environment that is free from profanity and obscenity, and enforcement of the Anoka-Hennepin Secondary Policies, by all district staff, which states in part:

- The right of all students to be educated in a learning environment that is free from bullying and the District 11 Bullying Prohibition Policy which states in part:
"An act of bullying, by either an individual student or a group of students, is expressly prohibited on Anoka Hennepin School District property, at school related functions, or in electronic form otherwise known as cyberbullying. This policy applies not only to students who directly engage in an act of bullying but also to students who, by their indirect behavior, condone or support another student’s act of bullying.....No teacher, administrator, other employee of Anoka Hennepin School District, volunteer, contractor, or bus driver shall permit, condone, or tolerate bullying."
