Puberty Education is part of the Mildred ISD curriculum based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements.  The district curriculum was chosen and approved by the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) which consists of parents, teachers, nurses, administrators, community members and students.

 

The district guidelines state that we teach 4th grade girls as well as 5th grade boys and girls about the maturation process. This teaching is done in the Spring.  Boys and girls are taught in separate classes. A letter stating the date of the class and requesting your permission for the teaching will be sent home to be signed and returned. Students who do not turn in the permission form will not participate in the lesson.

 

Our district guidelines also provide pertinent information to the 4th grade boys about physical hygiene/Puberty. This teaching is also done in the spring.

 

Instruction for each class is by video and live discussion. The links below will allow you to see the study guide and/or transcript that accompanies the video. Please contact your campus nurse with any questions.

JH/HS Partners with our local Hope Center. The Curriculum that is used:
6th - "CHOOSING THE BEST WAY"
8th - "CHOOSING THE BEST PATH/LIFE"
10th- "CHOOSING THE BEST JOURNEY"
 
JH- Also will have a Health Course with Curriculum from Goodheart-Wilcox. This Curriculum meets 100% Health TEKS and is approved by SBOE.
