We have approached the home stretch in CHART advocacy. Our primary goal has been to get 75% of our Priority 1 districts (25 of 33 districts) to adopt CHART. As of this moment, we are only 9 districts short of reaching that goal.
[Fun Fact: This post was originally going to be called “Ten to Win”, but another district announced as I began to type. Good problem to have, right?]
Below is a list of the Priority 1 districts that either (a) haven’t adopted a policy yet, (b) adopted their own abstinence-plus policy and are being asked to replace it with the CHART policy, or (c) adopted an abstinence-only policy and are being asked to reconsider their policy position.
Remaining Priority 1 Districts (Counties in Parenthesis where necessary):
- Benoit School District (Bolivar) – adopted abstinence-only
- Coahoma Agricultural High School – adopted abstinence-plus
- George County School District
- Holmes County School District
- Greenwood School District (Leflore) – adopted abstinence-plus
- South Panola School District
- Scott County School District
- Forest Municipal School District (Scott) – adopted abstinence-plus
- Sunflower County School District
- East Tallahatchie School District
- Hollandale School District (Washington)
- Coffeeville School District (Yalobusha)
- Water Valley School District (Yalobusha)
- Yazoo City School District – adopted abstinence-plus
- Yazoo County School District
Again, we only need 9 of these 14 districts to adopt the policy in order to reach our goal. If you’re interested in taking part in our advocacy efforts in any of these districts, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
