Family Life Committee

I had the pleasure of attending the Charles County Public Schools Family Life Committee yesterday, as a parent. I had been invited to participate some time last spring. The discussion yesterday was on approving the new sex education unit in the Health curriculum for the 9th/11th grade use. I must say I was pleased with the outcome. The curriculum was unanimously approved with minor changes and still focuses on abstinence as the best method to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Sorry I don't have any links or electronic documents, yet...but the committee is suppose to be presenting it to the Board for approval in October/November.
