District To Try High School Relationship / Sexuality Class

Next month East High will be offering a newly approved elective for Juniors and Seniors – Healthy Relationships, Sexual Education. The Anchorage School Board approved the course earlier this month.

Ariel Zlatkovski, an Eagle River senior who serves as Vice-President of the Alaska Association of Student Governments, was one of two people testifying at the public hearing preceding the board debate and vote. Zlatkovski pointed to a pair of resolutions from the statewide student organization asking for a comprehensive sex education class into high school curriculum.
