Health: Secondary

  • The academic success of America's youth is strongly linked with their health. Health literacy is essential for preparing students to be healthy and productive members of society.

Elementary Students
  • Health Education is achieved through a partnership of teachers, students, families, administrators, schools, and community. The task of the Tigard-Tualatin School District is to create a learning environment in which all students are valued for their diversity, fostered in their wellness development, challenged, and motivated to continue learning and leading a healthy lifestyle throughout their lifetime.

Instructional Resources

    • In June of 2022 the Tigard-Tualatin School Board voted to adopt the Comprehensive Health Skills for Middle School and Comprehensive Health Skills for High School health curriculum published by Goodheart-Willcox. 

    • The Goodheart-Willcox curriculum was the final recommendation of our Secondary Health Adoption Committee, a dedicated group of teachers, administrators, parents, and community members that worked together for over 9 months to complete this curriculum adoption process. We are extremely grateful for the time and dedication that the Secondary Health Curriculum Adoption Committee demonstrated in service of our students, community, and staff.

    • Upon adoption, teams of teachers have worked to create Scope and Sequences of health instruction for both the Middle School and High School levels.These Scope and Sequences of instruction are designed to teach the Oregon Health Standards and Performance Indicators in a way that is aligned with the TTSD Best Practices in Secondary Health Education Statement
