Human Growth and Development
Human Growth and Development will be taught each year during 5th and 6th grade. Topics include puberty, reproductive system and HIV/AIDS.
Families are invited to attend one of two identical presentations to learn about the health standards, activities and resources that will be used to teach each of the topics, and the opt-out process. Please see details below.
Those who are unable to attend the district presentations may review the lessons posted by clicking here. Due to copyright restrictions, we are required to post the links to the entire lessons as they were developed by F.L.A.S.H. Please know that some components of the lessons (example: homework-related activities for integrated learning and family homework) will not be taught.
The lessons and resources are also available for review from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. (or by appointment) at Teaching and Learning Services at the district office. A video that will be used for the lessons is available for viewing at the district presentation and at Teaching and Learning.
