Human Development Education Policy
All McMillen Center human development programs will be taught from an abstinence until marriage basis because abstinence is the only 100% sure way to prevent pregnancy and transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
If students ask a question regarding contraceptives, the Health Educator will ask permission to answer the question from the teacher or adult representative of the attending organization and then, if permitted, answer the question factually. The Health Educator will then point out that abstinence is the only 100% sure way of preventing pregnancy and infection with sexually transmitted diseases.
If the teacher or adult representative of the organization does not give permission to answer the question regarding contraceptives, the individuals attending will be encouraged to ask their parent, teacher or other trusted adult.
When teaching minor individuals, Health Educators will always recommend that questions regarding human development information should be addressed to their parents, teachers or another trusted adult.
