Re: Human Growth and Development Unit Plan and Resources

We would like to share details regarding the Human Growth and Development unit that will be taught in 9th grade health this semester. The instruction will last for 3 instructional days beginning on January 5, 2023. The unit will conclude on January 12, 2023. 

Human Growth and Development is required instruction in the state of Iowa. The State has also provided an opportunity for you, as a parent, to opt your child out of this unit. If your child is currently taking 9th grade Health, and you do not want your child to participate in this unit, please notify the building principal in writing or email prior to November 22, 2022.  

We recognize parents are the primary educators of their children, and it is our hope to be your partner in the delivery of Human Growth and Development information. We encourage you to preview the curriculum materials posted on our district website at: 9th Grade Human Growth & Development Unit – Central DeWitt Community School District.  Every presentation and resource that will be used during this unit, as well as the timeline, are available in these materials provided for your review.  

If you would like a hard copy of these materials, please contact the building principal. Please let us know if you have any questions as we proceed into the Human Growth & Development unit for our 9th grade students.

Dr. Dan Peterson, Superintendent
