    SOURCES OF STRENGTH CURRICULUM RESOURCES
     
    The Coeur d'Alene School District is considering adopting the Sources of Strength Curriculum Resources for use in kindergarten through fifth grades to support the elementary health curriculum. If approved by the Board of Trustees, Sources of Strength would be used to help students build resilience by reinforcing strengths such as hope, persistence and asking for help when needed.
     
    For more background, please see the Curriculum Committee Report Here.
    For links to Idaho State Health Content Standards, please consult the Idaho State Department of Education Website here.
     
    Please note:  The committee voted for two changes to the Grade 3-5 curriculum as it is posted here:

    1. Lesson 4.2b mentions suicide and will only be used if it is relevant to a class or group and parents will be notified and provided an opportunity to "opt out" of the lesson if it will be taught.  

    2.  There is a teacher note on lesson 2.2, p.28, where an example is given that mentions gender-specific bathrooms.  This comment will be removed from the copies given to counselors and trainers.  
     
    There are two ways the public can review the resources and provide feedback:
