GCS Family Life Curriculum
The Greeneville City Schools Family Life Curriculum will be taught to students in grades Kindergarten through high school in all schools. This is in compliance with Tennessee Code Annotated 49-6-1301-1304 which mandates our school system implement a program of Family Life instruction for students. The Family Life Curriculum team has worked to make this an age-appropriate instructional program following the Tennessee standards. All classes are taught by the system's teachers, counselors, nurses, or Greene County Health Department personnel. All students will participate in GCS Family Life Curriculum classes unless a parent/guardian submits a written request to the Principal to exempt his or her son/daughter.
Students may be exempt from the Family Life unit according to T.C.A. 49-6-1303: "Upon receipt of a written statement from a student's parent or guardian to the effect that the parent or guardian has personally examined the appropriate grade level instructional materials or has conferred directly with the student's instructor, school counselor or principal and that the parent or guardian finds objectionable any or all portions of family life instruction, the student shall be excused from such portion or portions of family life instruction."
The Family Life curriculum is available on the GCS website below. If you have any questions, please email Shelia Newland at [email protected].
