Coordinated School Health
Choosing the Best is an abstinence-centered, sexual risk avoidance and relationship education program shown to delay sex among middle school students. Choosing the Best offers computer based programs specifically tailored for each grade level at the middle school to promote abstinence and to teach students about their bodies, healthy relationships, personal boundaries, and protecting themselves from pregnancy and STDs. Curriculum also covers the structure and function of the human body, general health, and general hygiene. The seven-lesson instructional unit is instructed during Health/Fitness classes in grades 6-8 in the spring semester. Parents/guardians can access full lesson content by visiting the appropriate grade level link:
- 6th grade: Choosing the Best Way
- 7th grade: Choosing the Best Path
- 8th grade: Choosing the Best Life
According to state law, parents must opt-in for their students to receive this instruction. SBISD will send the opt-in forms to parents/guardians in December 2022 as human sexuality instruction will occur in Spring 2023.
