2413 - CRITICAL HEALTH PROBLEMS

The Board of Education, in compliance with State law, has adopted a comprehensive program of health education, known as the Michigan Model for Comprehensive School Health Education for grades 4 through 9 which will prepare students to maintain good health and enable them to adapt to changing health problems of our society.

The Board recognizes that this program, like others the District offers, may contain content and/or activities that some parents find objectionable. The District shall notify the parents, in advance of the instruction and about the content of the instruction and give the parents an opportunity to review the materials to be used.

The Superintendent shall prepare administrative guidelines that will ensure:

 A.the health education program includes appropriate learning experiences related to such topics as use, abuse, and effects of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco; mental, physical, and dental health; disease prevention and control; accident prevention; and related health and safety topics;

 B.periodic evaluation of student understanding;

 C.continual analysis of the effectiveness of the programs and the accuracy, completeness, and relevancy of the information and instructional procedures.

In implementing these programs, the Superintendent may use whatever District and outside resources, including Department of Education and ISD guidelines and consultants, s/he deems appropriate.
