The Adult Roles curriculum covers many sensitive topics including STI’s, sexuality, abuse, rape, gender roles, pornography etc.  In an ever changing world it is important that we are inclusive in how we teach topics relating to dating, marriage, and families.  Come receive ideas on how to cover some of these tough topics to ensure that our curriculum is inclusive for all of our students.  Time will be given for teachers to share ideas on how they address these tough topics.  More information will also be given regarding the changes to the human sexuality policy.
