The CHS class collecting the most money will receive a Chick Fil A party. In addition, CEF will match all funds collected, up to $500. Let's make a difference through CEF.

Parents Invited To Review "Big Decisions" Health Curriculum

Starting this year, Carroll ISD has updated its school health curriculum at the request of parents to include information on healthy relationships and how to prevent disease and unplanned pregnancy through abstinence and other means. Studies have shown that this type of instruction gives teens the confidence to avoid risky behavior and make good choices. To complement this curriculum, CISD is hosting a parent-only session to offer a preview of the updated health curriculum and answer any questions that parents may have about this curriculum. 

Who: Health parents
What: Discuss human sexuality curriculum “Big Decisions”
Where: CHS Lecture Hall (former art rooms on the northwest side of the building)
When: 6:30 PM, October 2nd, 2012

Teen pregnancy is a problem in Texas. In 2010, our state had the third highest rate of teen pregnancies in the U.S. Sixty-four of 1,000 births are to teenage mothers, higher than the national rate of 43 births to teenagers per 1,000 births nationally. Tarrant County has a teenage birthrate of 56 per 1,000 births, and our zip code does not make our kids immune to these issues.
