Age of Majority

Age of Majority

The age of majority in Minnesota is 18.  All students, regardless of age, are required to follow the rules and regulations as set forth by the District 834 Board of Education and the administrators of Stillwater Area High School.  Students need to have notification from their parent/guardian to attend appointments, leave school grounds, etc., unless a legal document or letter of release from the parent/guardian or notary is on file with the school.  Please note that even if a student has a signed or notarized Age of Majority form on file, parents/guardians will still receive information from the school.  This is due to Minnesota legislation effective in 2003.  As with younger students, by law, the school is required to judge whether the reason for an absence is excused or unexcused.  Eighteen-year-old students may obtain “Age of Majority” request forms from their Assistant Principal.
