AIDS/HIV AWARENESS PASSIVE PERMISSION SLIP FOR SOPHOMORE STUDENTS

 

 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

The 1987 Oklahoma State Legislature passed a law requiring Acquired Immune Deficiency (AIDS) prevention education to be taught in the public school curriculum between the 7th and 12th grade.

 

Here at Seminole High School, AIDS prevention information is presented by medical personnel during student’s 10th grade year.  The session is approximately one hour  and will cover information that is designated by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.  Boys and girls are separated during the session and abstinence will be stressed.

 

HIV/AIDS PREVENTION EDUCATION STANDARDS

1. Investigate and examine current information about HIV/AIDS in order to differentiate related facts,

    opinions, and myths.

2. Examine and identify the importance of sexual abstinence in adolescent relationships.

3. Demonstrate refusal skills (saying “no), negotiation skills and peer resistance skills related to

    sexual health.

4. Analyze the transmission and methods of prevention for sexually transmitted disease (STD) and     Human

   immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

5. Identify risk behaviors and situations involving possible exposure to HIV.

6. Examine the relationships between injecting drug use (IDU) and contact with contaminated blood

   products and the transmission of HIV.

7. Analyze the efficiency of artificial means of birth control in preventing the spread of HIV and other  

   sexually transmitted diseases.

 

No student shall be required to participate in AIDS prevention education if a parent or guardian objects in writing to such participation.  Please sign at the bottom and indicate your objection.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call at 382-1415.

 

Sincerely,

 

Beth Gaches

Kelley Johnson

 New for 2017-18!  

 *The family income limit at the time of application in the 8th-10th grade increases from $50,000 to $55,000.  The income limit is now based on the parents' federal adjusted gross income (AGI, rather than total taxable and nontaxable income).  

*Upon graduation from high school, eligible OKPromise students who choose to attend an Oklahoma public career technology center will have an expanded selection of programs.  Career tech programs that are eligible for federal financial aid are now eligible for use of the OKPromise scholarship.

 

                            Effective for 2018-19

*The scholarship will not longer pay for zero-credit remedial courses in college.

*Beginning in 2018-19, the $100,000 AGI second income limit will be applied to every OKPromise recipient EACH year in postsecondary education, rather than just the freshmen year. Students will be required to file the FAFSA every year and could move in and out of scholarship eligibility each year.  For any year that the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) of the student's parents exceeds $100,000, the student will not be eligible for the award that year.  This change will apply to all OKPromise college students in the 2018-19 and thereafter, regardless of when the student graduated from high school.

*A cap will be set on the total number of credit hours for which the scholarship will pay in postsecondary education.  This cap will be determined by the State Regents through the Administrative Procedures Process during 2017-18.
