Hearing on New Clarke County School Curriculum
27 August 2018 News
Clarke County’s School Board will hold a public hearing tonight on a draft of a family life education curriculum for students.
The curriculum, which has been a project of the School Health Advisory Board since last fall, will touch on topics ranging from abstinence, contraception, and STD’s to stress management, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, and suicide prevention. Standards for the curriculum are set by the Virginia Department of Education; while it would educate kids from kindergarten to 10th grade, topics for each grade would be age appropriate, and parents would be able to opt out of any part of the curriculum they choose. The meeting on the draft of this curriculum will begin at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Clarke County’s school administrative offices on West Main Street.
