Human Sexuality Instruction
Manor ISD has been teaching Scott & White Worth the Wait. The handbook states that Worth the Wait will be taught, and the permission slips provided in an open records request show Worth the Wait. However, this document indicates that Cardea Services will implement the WISE initiative and LifeWorks will provide Get Real Human Sexuality Instruction in the Middle and High Schools.
Manor ISD is listed among many Texas school districts as PureEdge districts. The Manor ISD SHAC discussed PureEdge at the March 9, 2017 SHAC Meeting.
“V. PURE Edge Professional Development
SFSS Director Becky Lott provided an overview of the Pure Edge professional development, which was provided on February 20 to the majority of PE teachers, social workers, counselors, registrars, food services staff and others and again to parents on February 21, 2017.
Pure Edge, Inc. believes that all students deserve to be taught strategies to help combat stress and develop social, emotional, and academic learning competencies with an open heart and an open mind.
This purpose of this experiential training is intended to help educators practice research-based strategies to reduce stress, calm the mind and achieve focus.
The following was covered and well received by the participants.
•Opening: Journaling check-in, chair movement and breath
•Slide Set: Pure Edge’s Mindful Movement, Breath, and Rest
•Interactive Exercises and Guided Practice
The district will be expanding this professional development in the summer and fall of 2017 to additional educators.”
