Condoms to Sixth Graders is Back!

Condoms to Sixth Graders is Back!
Oregon’s rural Gervais School District located fifteen minutes from Oregon’s capitol city of Salem appears to be drafting, once again, a policy which would include distributing condoms to students as young as 6th grade. This despite last year’s June 2014 community outcry that caught state and national attention which eventually led to the Board making a July announcement that the policy would not be implemented. Why the turnabout now? The Gervais School District appears to be moving forward on their efforts to adopt their “Health Resource Room and Services, Sexual Health Policy” which would include condom distribution. This could happen as soon as their Thursday, May 21st 6:00 p.m. board meeting. *Go to "Resources" and scroll down to bottom of page to view the GERVIS School District (DRAFT) Health Resource Room and Service, Sexual Health Policy - p.1-3
