--Required Course for Graduation--
Health Education Nine presents updated materials, information and data to the ninth grade student to make him better informed about general and specific health topics and current health issues. He is encouraged to become more aware of his environment, to explore and improve his health habits, to become a questioning consumer, to evaluate any information from any source purported to affect his wellness, and to be more safety-conscious in his hazardous environment. Students should increase their awareness of their wellness and the roles of physical activity, nutrition, exercise, recreation, drug use, and sexual behavioral attitudes for sound health. With this information, each student should be able to make wise choices and valid decisions based on healthy attitudes and moral principles.
