FLASH/KNOW Parent Preview
Washington State law requires that every student receives HIV/AIDs prevention education in grades 5 through 12. Because this unit covers sensitive topics, Washington State law and SBLSD board policy require that parents/families are provided the opportunity to preview these lessons.
The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District (SBLSD) is hosting a curriculum night for families to preview the HIV/AIDS prevention curriculum for students enrolled in the following:
6th and 7th grade science students (HIV/AIDS),
8th grade 2nd semester Skills for Life (HIV/AIDS),
9th grade Health classes (Health content), and
Applicable 10th through 12th grade classes (HIV/AIDS).
Curriculum will be available for preview on May 3. This is an opportunity for parents and guardians to understand the health content for grades 6-12, preview teaching materials and ask questions about the resources used in the classroom.
