Human Growth & Development

Wisconsin Statute 118.019(3) encourages all school boards to make available to students instruction in topics related to human growth and development. The kindergarten through grade 12 program in the Green Bay Area Public School District offers information and instruction appropriate to each grade level. The program includes instruction in the following areas:

  • Self-esteem, responsible decision making and personal responsibility.

  • Interpersonal relationships.

  • Discouragement of adolescent sexual activity.

  • Family life and skills required of a parent.

  • Human sexuality.

  • Sex stereotypes and protective behavior.

Complete curriculum materials dealing with these areas are available upon request for inspection in the district curriculum office.

Parents may choose to opt their children out of instruction in human growth and development. Students who have been exempted from human growth and development instruction will still receive instruction in knowledge of physiology and hygiene; sanitation; the effects of controlled substances and alcohol upon the human system; symptoms of disease and the proper care of the body; and knowledge of effective means by which students may recognize, avoid and prevent and halt physically or psychologically intrusive or abusive situations which may harmful to students as required by Wis. Stat. 118.01(2)(d)(2c) and 118.01(2)(d)(8). Contact your child’s teacher for this option.
