The Human Sexuality Curriculum Advisory Committee (HSAC) provides input to ISD 279 curriculum writing teams in the areas of human sexuality and sexually transmitted infections.
During pre-assessment, assessment and development phases of the Health Program Improvement Cycle, committee members:
- Review current curriculum. enrollment data and parent survey information in the areas of human sexuality and sexually transmitted infections; and
- Develop recommendations for curriculum revision, materials and parent survey in the areas of human sexuality and sexually transmitted infections.
HSAC membership is based on interest, not educational expertise. Members include one parent/guardian representative from each elementary building, up to two parent/guardian representatives from each secondary building and one student representative from each ISD 279 high school. A non-voting designee of the Superintendent will function as a liaison among the Superintendent, the advisory committee and writing teams.
Length of Term
The length of term is two years; terms may be extended or renewed upon request from the Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Educational Standards.
Meetings take place three times per year at the Educational Service Center. Additional meetings or extended meetings may be required.
Parents/guardians and high school students interested in serving on HSAC should contact their building principal.
