FLASH Curriculum

The lessons within the FLASH curriculum support students to learn about the following content and material:

  • Reflect on Abstinence Only
  • Communicate with their families about sexual health
  • Make decisions that minimize risk to their sexual health
  • Seek medical care in order to take care of their reproductive health

FLASH is based on the Theory of Planned Behavior.  Lessons include a variety of strategies designed to create positive attitudes, beliefs and norms, and to build skills in order to reduce rates of pregnancy, STDs and sexual violence.  FLASH includes a strong family-involvement component to further increase protective factors that support students in remaining abstinent, using birth control and condoms, and respecting others’ decisions not to have sex.  FLASH supports and respects diverse community values through its inclusive design, its use of the Values Question Protocol, and through the design of the Family Homework, which encourages discussion about values.  FLASH also supports healthy lifestyles and decision-making, self-esteem, self-awareness, boundaries and communication.  All of the content is designed at a level that is meaningful for the diverse needs of our special populations.

Families will have the ability to opt in or out of health and sexual education curriculum instruction.  In addition, there will be an annual parent preview/informational session to help families understand the content and the level of instruction.

All videos were chosen from previously Board Adopted Materials which are currently in practice.

 

Public Hearing

The proposed materials have been reviewed and approved by the district’s 17-member Health Advisory Board, comprised of parents of children attending Northville Public Schools, as well as district educators, a high school student, local clergy, and community health professionals, as required by law.  These materials were also reviewed by the District’s Curriculum Council who supported the content and lessons.

The next step in the curriculum review process is to offer parents and community members the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed materials, prior to Board of Education consideration, during the preview opportunities and public hearings noted below. If approved by the Board, the new materials would be implemented for the 2020-21 school year.
