meeting, the participants were most interested in finances, transportation, and the district’s building program.
Other topics at Saturday’s forum included drug awareness and AIDS curriculum, the Home-Alone Program, and Sex Respect Program.
Drug awamcss and AIDS curriculum arc found in ClSD’s health curriculum at all grade levels because the topics arc included in required clements by the Texas Education Agency. The district uses materials obtained through the Regional Educational Service Center. Administrators suggest the district purchase kits from the center and allow the center to train teachers in their use. The purchase is recommended because it would make materials more accessible when more teachers arc trained and need them.
CISD’s Home-Alone Program helps the many children who go home from school by themselves leant responsibility when they arc home alone. Through the use of lessons, videos, and role playing, children are taught the importance of what to do and what not to do when alone at
