Human Growth and Development

Human Growth and Development provides students with decision-making skills about situations often faced in real life. Students discuss age appropriate topics related to self-identity, goal setting, growth and development, healthy relationships, communication, bullying, media influences, abstinence, sexuality, reproduction, reproductive options, LGBTQ, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases. This age appropriate course is optional in elementary and required during grades 7, 8 and 10. Parents may choose to opt-out their child without penalty to the student for all or parts of the course.

Omaha Public Schools began implementing the current curriculum for Human Growth and Development (HGD) in August of 2016. That was the first full adoption of updated HGD content standards, materials, textbooks and resources since the course was implemented in 1986.
