Adopted Core Curriculum List


  • Middle School – Holt – Decisions for Health
    • Holt's award-winning health resources promote active exploration of health concepts, character building and life skills by requiring students to apply what they learn within the context of the real world. We offer the most current health guidelines and statistics including updated information about CPR, First Aid, and the USDA's MyPyramid. Online Editions, HealthLinks, Exploring Food and Fitness Choices CD-ROM, and a hand-selected Video Health Series integrate technology to reinforce learning and assure student interaction.


  • High School – Prentice Hall Health
    • The Prentice Hall Health program makes health exciting for students and provides teachers with the resources they need to support content and academic achievement.  By integrating into the program the Teens Talk Video Series, developed in partnership with Discovery Channel, Pearson makes health relevant to students.  The videos, which support every chapter in the book, stimulate classroom discussion of the content and skills essential to successful health education.  An unparalleled array of ancillaries and technology, including a variety of differentiated instruction components, enables Prentice Hall Health to meet the needs of every student at every learning level.
