Family Life & Sexual Health
Washington State Legislature mandated that a program of prevention education be presented yearly to students beginning in the fifth grade. The Camas School District has adopted appropriate materials for Family Life and Sexual Health. The curriculum we use complies with the state standards, which states that curriculum must “include both abstinence and other contraceptive information” (ESSB 5297). Please read the parent letter for more information on the content that will be presented during this health unit.
*On January 30th @ 6 p.m. health teachers from Liberty, Skyridge and Odyssey Middle Schools will host a Camas School District middle school sexual health curriculum night at Odyssey Middle School. The information presented will be an overview of the Family Life and Sexual Health(F.L.A.S.H.) curriculum taught at the middle school level. Following the informational meeting the curriculum will be available for full parent preview for a month prior to classroom presentations.
*Parents who choose to have their child OPT OUT from the Family Life and Sexual Health unit MUST review all the materials located in the main office and sign a release form.
