There will be a Secondary Parent Information Meeting for the purpose of informing parents and guardians about the state required HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Program.  This meeting will be held at 5:30 pm on Monday, October 22nd at the Edmond Public Schools Administrative Center.  This meeting is intended for parents of 7th, 9th & 10th-grade students.

The HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Program is taught in grades 5, 7, 9 and 10.  The 7th-grade program is taught by trained, certified science teachers at each middle school.  The 9th-grade program is taught by trained, certified health teachers and the 10th-grade program is taught by trained, certified science teachers at each high school.

At the Secondary Parent Information Meeting, a general overview will be presented to all parents.  District staff will continue the meeting for parents to learn more about the specific content and be able to view the videotapes used at each grade level.

For parents unable to attend the Parent Information Meeting, curriculum materials are available for review.  Parents may review HIV/AIDS Prevention Education materials at Edmond Public Schools Administrative Center Curriculum Office, located at 1001 W. Danforth.  Parents may check out the videos for a 24-hour period beginning the morning following the parent meeting.  Reservations for reviewing curriculum materials and for checking out DVDs can be made by calling Kim Robison at 340-2278.
