     Dear Parents/Guardians of 7th Grade Students,

     

    Usually during the third trimester of 7th grade, students in FCUSD participate in a comprehensive program of instruction in family living and sex education (Positive Prevention Plus). This program firmly teaches abstinence from sexual activity and students gain knowledge to help develop healthy attitudes concerning adolescent development, body image, relationships and family. 

      Our district office, in collaboration with seventh grade science teachers, have discussed the possible methods of delivery of this program in light of our current distance learning situation. Due to the sensitive nature of the topics covered, and the concern for equal access to the curriculum, one of the recommendations was to move the Positive Prevention Program to grade 8. The moving of the program to grade 8 would only be done for this group of students. In the future the Positive Prevention Plus program would continue to be taught in Grade 7. 

     Folsom Middle School has elected to teaching this important and sensitive material to your child in 8th grade. This decision was not made lightly and involved much discussion. We believe this decision is best for the students given our current situation with COVID-19 and distance learning. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s science teacher.  

     

    Sincerely,

    FMS Science Department
