Most are pretty open to it. They’re talking about their plans, what they’re going to do; it’s just different.” Holland isn’t sure if that’s a good or bad sign. “Research would say it’s not good, because it impacts their ability to graduate high school and the likelihood that they’re going to continue on to college is lessened when they become a parent, not just financially but the time commitment,” he said. This school year there are five teen parents enrolled in the Teen Parent Program. “It’s hard to say” whether that is higher or lower than past years, said Harding Learning Center Principal Shelly McKnight. “The reason I say that is because ... since we’re an alternative program, our numbers go up and down all the time,” she said. The school year might begin with more teen parents but as they complete their

tems, AIDS, contraceptives and dimensions of sexuality (physical, emotional, social, cultural and ethical). On Jan. 8 and 9, a Coos County Pregnancy Resource Center representative will talk with the freshmen about abstinence. The students will spend two days learning about contraceptives, how each is used and their success rate. They’re outlined from 100 percent success (abstinence) all the way down to 50 percent success (no contraception). The district is putting together a committee to review the curriculum and to make sure it’s updated with the newest research and educational best practices. The committee’s first meeting will be held the second week in January. Reporter Chelsea Davis can be reached at 541-2691222, ext. 239, or by email at chelsea.davis@theworldlink.com.

In fifth and seventh grade at Millicoma Intermediate and Sunset Middle schools, students will get a broad overview of the beginning stages of puberty. They’ll learn about the reproductive systems, and emotional and physical changes. Girls will also learn how to use a menstrual calendar, pads and tampons, as well as toxic shock syndrome.

applications by hand. The announcement about King’s medical leave came right before Cover Oregon’s board went into executive session to discuss his job performance. The board had the executive director on notice, demanding to know when the website will work and how Cover Oregon will get people enrolled by the end of the year. King told reporters he had struggled with his health for several years and was planning to take some medical leave for a while,though he did not pick the date until last week. “It’s time for me to focus on my health for a little bit,”

he said. He did not describe what his medical condition entailed. He also said he has not resigned, though his return to Cover Oregon was dependent on his health. “No one has talked about stepping down,” King said. “As far as I know, everybody’s been supportive of me.” But for the third time in the past few months, the board voted that King was not in compliance, this time when it comes to the exchange’s launch date, the plan to enroll the maximum number of Oregonians, and the plan to get the exchange functional.
