Coos Bay Public Schools is beginning the review process of human sexuality education courses and invites interested parents, teachers, school administrators, community representatives and persons from the medical community to review the current curriculum content. You can review the policy at the following link: Policy IGAI
The curriculum will be available for review December 2nd – 20th at Milner Crest Education Center, 1255 Hemlock Ave. during regular business hours. A committee will be created to review the curriculum content in accordance with new scientific information and effective education strategies. They will be meeting the 2nd week of January.

What’s Best for Students
On Saturday, January 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the Coos Bay School Facilities Committee, in conjunction with the District, will hold a workshop focused on grade configurations.
While safety, roofs and heating are among the critical components of our schools, “What’s Best for Students” will largely address Coos Bay Public Schools’ grade configurations. Community members and District staff will have the opportunity to share their opinions on how Coos Bay grade configurations can support student achievement.
We will look at other models across the state and nation and work in small-group settings. Our goal for the day is to develop tangible solutions the District can further explore and then apply to our school buildings. Please let us know if you would like to be involved so we can include everyone in this critical discussion about the future of our children and community.
A complimentary lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Peggy Ahlgrim at (541)267-1310 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending.
For more information, contact Ariann Lyons @ email@example.com.
