New Hampshire Educators' Handbook: A Guide for Developing HIV/AIDS Curriculum and Policy.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
This handbook was developed to facilitate the task school districts face in developing and implementing effective Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) curriculum and policy. Organized into five sections, the guide begins with an introduction that includes the New Hampshire State Board of Education HIV/AIDS philosophy and goals, an updated version of "Surgeon General's Report on Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome" by the former Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop, and community action steps. The second section describes the Cornell University Model Program, the Atlanta Center for Counseling and Family Education "Active Parenting" Discussion Program, guidelines for effective education about AIDS from the Centers for Disease Control, outcome/performance indicators K-12, and criteria for evaluating an AIDS curriculum. The third section, "Policy Development and Implementation Guide," addresses the following topics: general principles for student attendance, staff employment, confidentiality, testing, evaluating HIV-infected students and staff members, infection control, pertinent federal legislation on discrimination and on protection for the disabled, reporting, and getting a school district ready for a rational approach to students and staff who are infected with HIV. The final section provides a resource guide: AIDS information and referral services, New Hampshire HIV Counseling and testing sites, community service organizations (speakers/consultants), national organizations, and educational materials. New Hampshire laws relating to HIV/AIDS, ideas for family communication, a sexuality education survey, glossary, and the Wisconsin Curriculum Progression Matrix--K-12 are appended. (LL)
