Parents have the opportunity review and discuss our school's 7th grade health curriculum.  

Campbell Union School District uses Health Connected’s Teen Talk Middle School course for 7th grade health. It is one unit in the overall health education for 7th grade, and it is taught by a trained Physical Education or Science teacher.

The curriculum complies with California Education laws and Health Education Standards under “Growth, Development and Sexual Health.” We notify parents of 7th graders before teaching the unit by sending them a letter with more information about the lessons.

Students had equal say as adults as more than 100 parents, students, staff and neighbors gave input at a March 23 community forum about creating a new Preschool–8th-grade school in the District.

The meeting began with attendees using stickers to vote on the Guiding Principals the Transformation Team will consider as it develops recommendations for the Governing Board. Then, participants and facilitators separated into affinity groups—parents with other parents, students with students, and so on—so they could discuss hopes, concerns and ideas for the new school. They consolidated their input and reported it back to the whole group. Their responses are posted on the District's Transformation web page in the March 23 meeting notes.

In April, the Transformation Team will review the responses and identify common themes to address in recommendations it sends to the Board in June.
