Bulloch County Schools will host a Parent Review Night on March 21, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the boardroom of the school district’s Central Office, to discuss Sexuality Education lessons for middle- and high-school students.

It is a time for families of sixth through ninth-grade students to look, learn, and ask questions about the Sexuality Education lessons that their children will be taught between March 28 through May 20.

These are the grade levels and class delivery methods for those who are scheduled to receive instruction this Spring:

Sexuality Education: All students in grades six through nine

  • William James Middle and Southeast Bulloch Middle students will be taught in their Science classes
  • Langston Chapel Middle and Portal Middle students will be taught by a variety of their teachers
  • Southeast Bulloch High, Statesboro High, and Portal High students will be taught in ninth-grade Health and Physical Education classes

On March 15, the school district will send home a parent packet that includes a letter to parents, an invitation to the Parent Review Night, and an opt-out form home with students. Parents also received this information via the school district’s mass messaging system.

The Parent Night event provides families an opportunity to review the curriculum or choose to opt their child out of the lessons prior to instruction. Families may also visit the school district’s website at www.bullochschools.org/sexualityeducation for complete information, the Parent Packet, online reservation link and opt out form. Parents may also call their child’s school to request an individual review appointment.

Bulloch County Schools’ approved Sexuality Education lessons are fact-based and developed with input from local faculty, health professionals, and parents. Bulloch County Schools is required by state law and local Board of Education policy to provide these lessons to students.

Human Trafficking Awareness Review for Certain Southeast Bulloch High School Families

During the March 21 Parent Review Night, families of certain Southeast Bulloch High School Students have also been invited to review Human Trafficking Awareness lessons that will be taught in ninth through twelfth-grade social studies classes during March 28 through May 20. Since Southeast Bulloch classes are taught on a block schedule instead of a year-long schedule, not all students received the lessons that were taught in the fall.

Those who did not will receive these lessons this spring. These families have also been notified, and students will bring home a parent packet as well on March 15. This information and an online registration link are also available at www.bullochschools.org/sexualityeducation.

Families may also contact Debbie Sarratt at the Central Office at 912-212-8566.
