School Health

Parenting and Paternity Awareness (p.a.p.a.) is an evidence-based, educational curriculum designed for young adults. It teaches them the benefits of waiting to become a parent until after they have completed their education, started a career, and are in a stable, committed relationship. The p.a.p.a. program is a way school districts can comply with state law requiring high-school health to include a parenting and paternity awareness curriculum. The Office of the Attorney General provides this free curriculum and training to teachers, school counselors, school nurses, teen parent program staff, and parent educators in community-based programs. These professionals are then equipped to educate the young adults with whom they work.  

A UDCA (Unlicensed Diabetic Care Assistant) is a trained volunteer that helps students with their diabetes management and is supervised by the school principal. A school employee may not be subject to any penalty or disciplinary action for refusing to serve as an UDCA. 

We have completed our Unlicensed Diabetic Care Assistant (UDCA) trainings for the Fall of 2022.
