Choices 360 Curriculum

Lubbock-Cooper High School Health Students will be receiving their comprehensive sexual education curriculum on May 11-18, 2021. This 3 part curriculum is called “Choices 360:Continuing Choices” (Empowering YOU to make YOUR choices). This abstinence based program will teach your student about reproductive anatomy, pregnancy, sexual choices, consequences of sexual activity, brain science related to sexual activity, boundaries, and healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. The Choices 360 program meets the requirements of the Texas Health Education (TEKS) and has been reviewed and approved by the LCISD School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC).

The director of the Choices 360 program is Bobbie Kite BSN, RNC-OB from Parkridge Clinic. This program has been used successfully for several years in our district.

Following the program, students will be asked to complete a voluntary survey giving feedback on the program and curriculum.

A parent education night has been scheduled for Monday, May 3rd at 6:00 PM in the Lubbock-Cooper High School Commons. During this event, we will present an overview of curriculum to the parents, provide resources and talking points to continue the conversation at home, and open the floor for a question and answer session.

A Note from the Nurses' Office Regarding Medications and Immunizations

Attention parents: All medication in the Nurse's Clinic must be picked up by the last day of school. Please make arrangements with the Nurse to pick up your child's medication. Per district policy, medication not picked up will be disposed of on May 28, 2021.

If you need a copy of your child's immunization record you can log on to Skyward Family Access. On the left hand side of the screen there is a "Health Info" tab. Click on this tab and it will take you to your child's Vaccination record. You can print this screen.

For Graduating Seniors attending a Texas college: One dose of MCV4 (Meningococcal) must have been received in the previous five years. This is required in Texas for those under the age of 22 years and enrolling in a Texas college/university. Most students have received one dose of MCV4 but the vaccine would have been given at around age 11 years which means incoming college freshman have to have another MCV4 before attending college.
