Hello Milan Community,
The Milan Area Schools Sex Education Advisory Board (SEAB) meets regularly throughout the year. At their recent meetings, the group reviewed new materials for teaching Paddock Elementary students about Body Safety. The new curriculum was developed by and would be presented by the Washtenaw Area Council for Children. The materials include eight 20 minute lessons:
Week 1 - I am the Boss of My Body
* Poison, Fire, and Gun Safety
* Home Alone / Getting Lost
* Car and Street Safety
Week 2 - I am the Boss of my Body
* Private Parts
* Body Safety Rule
* What to do if someone breaks the Body Safety Rule
* No, Go, Tell
SEAB hosted the first required open hearing for the community at 6:00 PM on January 23rd, in the Paddock cafeteria. SEAB will host the second required open hearing on February 8th at 6:00 PM in the Milan High School Theater, prior to the School Board Board Meeting. The goal is to seek School Board approval at the second School Board meeting in February. SEAB is making this recommendation to the Board of Education on a unanimous vote. The program will include parent evening events each year prior to the classroom instruction. The organization will also provide detailed letters for families. As always, families could opt out of the program.
In an effort to keep the Milan Community up to speed on important educational topics, Bryan Girbach, the Superintendent of Milan Area Schools, will be sharing updates following each School Board Meeting. These updates will provide information about educational topics at the district, county, state, and national levels.

The city of Milan, which encompasses a total of 3.4 square miles, was founded in 1831 and is located in the Southeastern Counties of Washtenaw and Monroe in the State of Michigan. Located between the cultural and commercial hubs of Ann Arbor, MI and Toledo, OH, Milan has both rural and suburban areas.
The Milan School District embraces nearly 90 square miles and serves households in both Washtenaw and Monroe Counties. The district is proud to note that its staff is made up of both veteran teachers and those new to the profession, all of whom are highly qualified. The four school buildings that comprise the Milan Area School District operate as schools-of-choice facilities and consistently enroll students from four surrounding counties. The district offers exceptional educational programs to approximately 2,000 students ranging from preschool age to grade twelve.
The community is proud of the scholastic and extracurricular accomplishments of its students. School activities serve as an important part of the overall student experience and provide social activities for the entire community.
