AIDS Instruction

The Connellsville Area School District provides instruction about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and related issues at four (4) levels of the curriculum: Grade 3 (primary), Grade 5 (Intermediate), Grade 8 (Jr. High), and Grade 11 (Sr. High/CACTC), as part of District policy and state regulations.
Pupils may be excused from the formal instruction within the health curriculum when the instruction conflicts with the religious or morals beliefs of the parents/guardians or the pupil. A written excuse is required and must be presented to the building principal, PRIOR to the instruction, for the pupil to be excused. 
Curricular outlines and materials used in conjunction with AIDS instruction are available for examination by calling the appropriate building principal for an appointment during regular school hours.
