2413 Policy_Health Education

The Board of Education, in compliance with State law, has adopted a comprehensive wellness program of health
education 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; and
    C. Continual analysis of the effectiveness of the program and the accuracy, completeness, and relevancy of the
        information and instructional procedures.
In implementing the program, the Superintendent may use whatever District and outside resources, including
Department of Education guidelines and consultants, s/he deems appropriate.
