Human Growth & Development (K-12)
Human Growth and Development is one part of the District's health curriculum.
Stoughton's human growth and development curriculum is based on abstinence* and is designed to help students 1) understand their growth, development, and sexuality; 2) develop a positive self-concept, and 3) acquire factual knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that result in behavior that contributes to the well-being of the individual in connection with their family as they develop strategies for responsible decision-making.
*A human growth and development curriculum based on abstinence emphasizes the value of abstinence but also includes information on contraceptives at specified grade levels.
Human Growth and Development is taught during the school year at appropriate times in the instructional program.
