Curriculum Directors,

You can find the summary of Friday's Board of Education meeting at http://www.schools.utah.gov/board/Meetings/Summary.aspx#Middle.

Of particular interest to you are most likely, the following:

The Utah State Board of Education is considering adding additional flexibility to junior high/middle school course requirements. The Board specifically asked staff to look at the options in column three of this document<http://www.schools.utah.gov/board/Meetings/Summary/MiddleSchoolOptions.aspx> and report back to the Board in June with potential changes to Administrative Rule R277-700 The Elementary and Secondary School General Core<https://rules.utah.gov/publicat/code/r277/r277-700.htm>.

he Utah State Board of Education approved a change to Administrative Rule R277-474-3 School Instruction and Human Sexuality - General Provisions<http://www.boarddocs.com/ut/usbe/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=ALMM6S59599D> that removes language prohibiting the advocacy of homosexuality in Utah public schools. The change is in accordance with a recent change in Utah state statute<https://le.utah.gov/~2017/bills/static/SB0196.html>.

If you have any questions about these items or any other, do not hesitate to ask.
