The Giddings Independent School District will soon begin teaching sexual health to all middle school students. School administrators have chosen Scott & White's abstinence curriculum called Worth the Wait/Wellness & Sexual Health. It is a week unit based on the medical and legal facts regarding teen sexual activity and stresses abstinence as the healthiest choice for teens.

The curriculum will be available at our school campus for you to preview or you can visit:
