Bulloch County Schools will host a Parent Review Night on March 21, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the boardroom of the school district’s Central Office located at 150 Williams Road in Statesboro. It is a time for families to look, learn, and ask questions about the Sexuality Education lessons that students in middle and high school will be taught during March 28 through May 20.
These are the grade levels who are scheduled to receive age-appropriate Sexuality Education instruction this spring:
- All students in grades six through nine
- William James Middle and Southeast Bulloch Middle students will be taught in their Science classes
- Langston Chapel Middle and Portal Middle students will be taught by a variety of their teachers
- Southeast Bulloch High, Statesboro High, and Portal High students will be taught in ninth-grade Health and Physical Education classes
On March 13, middle and high school families will receive a reminder via telephone and email about this upcoming instruction. On March 15, the school district will send home a parent packet that includes a letter to parents, an invitation to the Parent Review Night, and an opt-out form home with students.
The Parent Night event provides families an opportunity to review the curriculum or choose to opt their child out of the lessons prior to instruction. Families may also visit the parent toolkit on the school district website via this link. Parents may also call their child’s school to request an individual review appointment.
Bulloch County Schools’ approved Sexuality Education Program lessons are fact-based and developed with input from local faculty, health professionals, and parents. Bulloch County Schools is required by state law and local Board of Education policy to provide these lessons to students.
