The Sunnyside School Board decided at last week's meeting to establish a committee to review health, family life and sex education curriculum.
Interested community members have until Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 4 p.m. to submit their letters of interest to the Sunnyside School District administration office, c/o Sunnyside School District Superintendent Dr. Rick Cole, 1110 South Sixth Street.
One of the main duties of the committee will be to review the current sex education curriculum, which would include teaching abstinence, and making any needed improvements.
The Sunnyside Ministerial Association voiced its approval of the establishment of such a committee. Several parents, including Tim and Ann Bardell, Dr. Fred and Sheri Boboth, Gary and Mary Johnson, LaDon and Sandra Linde, Gary and Katie Martin, and Dr. Marc and Rochelle Meininger, also gave their approval to establishing a sex education, health and family life committee in the district.
