How do I have a say about what is taught in Health Education?

At the end of the 2018-2019 school year we provided information on the Health Education Framework that had recently been released by the California Department of Education, which included an outline of the differences between the California Healthy Youth Act, the Health Framework, and our curriculum. We also sent out a district-wide survey so we could better learn what questions and concerns our families had, surrounding sexual education.

In an effort to continue a two-way conversation on this subject, we would like to invite you to attend any one of the Health Education Parent Forums taking place at our elementary schools in the upcoming weeks.

Please click here for the Schedule of Parent Forums

At the Parent Forum you will learn about the current 5th grade curriculum Always Changing and Growing Up, have an opportunity to see one of the videos, Always Changing -- Co-ed, that is shown to fifth graders, and share your feedback with us in a guided activity. This feedback will be used to recommend a curriculum to the Board of Education. If new curriculum is recommended, and upon Board approval, it would take effect in the 2020-21 school year.

To preview the curriculum we are using for fifth grade sexual ed instruction, please visit the site: Always Changing and Growing Up
