Dr. Karen Dubrule, director of curriculum and instruction, will ask the Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees Thursday to adopt the new curriculum for the fifth-grade course, Family Life Instruction, a sex education class.
Dubrule is recommending a trio of DVDs by Marsh Media — “We’re Just Talking! For Boys and Girls,” “We’re Just Around the Corner” and “We’re Growing Up!” — be accepted for the course.
“During the school year 2011-12, the Superintendent and Director of C&I were informed of teacher and administrator concerns relative to … curriculum used in Family Life Instruction,” Dubrule wrote in a report to the board.
