The Millington Municipal School District (MMSD) uses the Michigan Model’s Family Life Curriculum. This is a holistic, abstinence-centered, curriculum that provides students with age appropriate information on personal growth, development, wellness, personal hygiene, safety, and avoidance of health-related risky behaviors.


This model has a curriculum for all grade levels, but the focus on family life takes place in grades 6-8 and 9-12.  This curriculum is incorporated into Health classes grades 6-8, and the 9th grade Wellness Course. Some aspects of human growth and development are taught by our elementary Science Teachers as required by Tennessee Health Education Standards.


MMSD provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to review the Family Life Curriculum, with curriculum highlights, guidance, and links to Tennessee Educational Standards at our Family Resource Center during the school year.  The curriculum books and support materials are also available at each school for review. 


Parents/guardians who do not wish for their child to participate will be given the opportunity to indicate their intent to have their child “opt out” from the program.  

The Family Life Curriculum will be on the agenda for the August or September School Board Meeting to receive continued approval and address any comments from parents who have reviewed the curriculum and state standards.
