Elementary Human Growth and Development Update

The Moreland School District is in the process of adopting a new Human Growth & Development curriculum for grade 5. In September 2021, Moreland formed a Human Growth and Development Task Force with teacher, parent, community member, and district office representation from across the district to review the California Health Education framework and standards, as well as the California Healthy Youth Act, as they align with curriculum adoptions. After the curriculum review process, the committee will come together to discuss each program and select one to recommend for adoption. This information can also be found on the district website.

Be Seen and Heard

Erin’s Law requires schools to implement an age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for grades TK through 12. Victor Pacini, a survivor of sexual abuse, author and motivational speaker, will be assisting our schools in implementing this mandate. Be Seen and Heard, Mr. Pacini’s assembly program, is developmentally appropriate, interactive, and aligned with learning standards. The assemblies are presented in specific grade level groups to ensure that the message is age appropriate for all students. The focus of the presentation is to teach children basic skills to keep them safe from dangerous or abusive situations. The concepts that will be discussed are: Distinguishing safe from unsafe touches Safe/Unsafe Secrets It’s not the child’s fault if someone touches him or her Telling a trusted adult Safety rules at home and school Saying “NO” Mr. Pacini or his colleague will be presenting virtually at all sites.
