Sexual Health Instruction

Sexual health education in our district is currently addressed in 5th and 8th grade. These units of instruction have been in place for several years. For the 2022-23 school year, we plan to continue and extend our partnership with Candor Health Education (formerly Robert Crowne) for both 5th and 8th grades.

The 5th grade curriculum is called Puberty I, and the 8th grade curriculum is called Teen Sexual Health I. These lessons are developed in alignment with components of the National Sexual Health Standards and have been for several years. They do not address all the National Sexual Health Standards at all grades.

Please read below for more information about the sexual health education curriculum for both grades.

8th Grade
Teen Sexual Health

This unit will be offered during Health class. Health is a trimester-long class

6th Grade

If you have any questions about the content of the 6th grade presentation, please contact your child's health teacher.

5th Grade
Puberty I

5th grade teachers will schedule these presentations throughout the year. Parents and guardians will be notified of the school-specific dates and times.
