Human Sexuality Curriculum Parent Orientation
The District’s sexuality education program has been established to provide information and skill development for students in prekindergarten through grade 12 so that they may reach their highest potential for physical, emotional, mental, and social health. The District’s core values of high expectations, respect for the individual, resources to support student needs, and shared ownership and commitment, as specified in the District Improvement Plan, shall be reflected in the design and implementation of the sexuality education program.  

Kealing students will be taught this unit during the month of May so we would like to ensure that parents have an opportunity to learn about the human sexuality program. Please join us on April 2, 2019 from 5:00 - 6:00 pm in the Kealing Library to learn more. Student opt-out forms will be sent home on April 2 and April 3 for parents who choose not to have their students participate.
