Wausau starts sex education review process

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Wausau school board members and residents met tonight to start the process of reviewing the district's sex education curriculum.

Education coordinator Thom Hahn says the process is supposed to happen every three years, so it's been a while since the committee has been called. “We're trying to find out just what changes, if any, we have to make to comply with the new state statutes.”

Hahn says the upcoming process is not going to be anywhere as thorny as the changes that needed to be made in Merrill. “We already teach an abstinence-first based education in Wausau, much like the DPI requires.” He says this process will allow the board to go over the entire curriculum and find out if any corrections or additions need to be made.

The committee started with the elementary schools tonight, and will be moving on to middle school education at their next meeting in January.
