Parent Survey: Sex Education/Reproductive Health Program
The Western School District is in the process of reviewing the sex education/reproductive health education program to better meet the needs of students as well as the standards of our community. We are asking parents/guardians of students to take a few minutes to complete the following survey. This information will be used by a committee of administrators, teachers and parents in making revisions to the curriculum.
Please take a moment to read this letter on the concept of a balanced calendar that is occuring across Jackson County.
