Grades 9 and 10
Health Education is a trimester course required of all ninth and tenth graders in 2013-14. (In future years, it will become a required ninth grade course.) Students will receive factual information and confront attitudes regarding responsibility to one’s wellness, drug and alcohol use, human sexuality, STIs (sexually transmitted infections), including HIV/AIDS, and building healthy relationships. This course will provide students with the opportunity to discuss these issues and others of concern to them, to obtain accurate information through classroom and library research, and to develop strategies for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Any parent or guardian objecting to his/her child’s participation should write a letter explaining reasons for the request for exemption from the Health requirement and deliver it to the Assistant Principal’s office no later than May 15. Students exempted from the Health requirement will be scheduled for a directed study, not an additional elective course.
