Carson City School District

Family Life Advisory Committee

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Carson City School District (CCSD) offers a Family Life Education program for students in grades 6-12 as mandated by Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 389.065. The course of study for this program was developed by the Family Life Advisory Committee and was adopted by the School Board of Trustees in 1999. The state philosophy of the program is:

The Carson City School District Family Life Advisory Committee believes that this curriculum should provide accurate, scientific information about human reproduction and all sexually transmitted diseases at appropriate age levels; stress key human behaviors such as trust, courage, honesty, respect, self-control, and responsibility; emphasize the advantage of premarital abstinence; and accurately depict the consequences of irresponsible decision making regarding sexuality for those NOT in long-term monogamous relationships.

On the reverse of this letter you will find an outline of the course content. In order for you to better understand the program, we would invite you to preview the curriculum and materials. If you would like to meet with your child’s teacher to review the materials please call or email them. Additionally, you may contact Education Services at 775-283-1521 to set up an appointment to review the materials.

Written permission is required before your child can participate in this program. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this program, alternative health-related curriculum will be provided during the regular scheduled class time in an alternative classroom.
