In Leander ISD, the 6th Grade Human Sexuality Curriculum is taught by the Health and PE staff at the middle school generally in the last six weeks of the year. At HMS, this unit is scheduled to take place on May 17th, 18th and 24th. Parent information letters were mailed home earlier this month. If you would like to have your child opt out of this curriculum, please sign the bottom of the letter and return it to the HMS Counseling office.
The material consists of five lessons on the following topics:
- Personal Hygiene
- Human Reproductive System
- HIV and AIDS
- Refusal Skills
Parents can preview the materials for these lessons at the HMS campus library.
