Course Description: Health is a required single trimester course designed for students to explore and expand their understanding of health-related topics. The course focuses on self-awareness to examine the connections between physical, mental, and social health, and the impact it has on their lives and others. Students are encouraged to increase their self-awareness as they explore decision making, conflict resolution, stress management, physical health, mental/emotional health, social health, online safety, personal health habits, healthy relationships, and the biology of sex. These topics are serious and often personal and require an increased level of maturity. The course provides the working knowledge for students to make healthy lifelong decisions but leaves the standard and expectation setting to the parents or guardians. Parents or guardians are encouraged to engage their students in discussion about the topics put forth in class. While this course is an elective, the pace and depth requires students to invest and engage in order to maximize their experience. Students work collaboratively in and out of class while developing strong personal discipline to complete their work.

Attendance Expectations & Requirements
While the course content is online, the nature of the course is "blended," meaning there are traditional in-class meetings. There are 11 scheduled face-to-face meeting times. Students are required to make 5 of these face-to-face sessions as outlined below. Face-to-face sessions will last 90 minutes and a schedule of meetings can be found on the course calendar. While there are a minimum of five classes required for credit, we encourage students to come to more sessions so that they can have dedicated work time and ready access to our instructors.

Students must complete and turn in an attendance plan to the instructors showing how they plan to meet the minimum attendance requirements.
