LAUSD Health Education Programs-Secondary Presented by Karen Redway Local District G Secondary Health Education-Advisor (323) 421-2936
Current Secondary Programs • IMPACT • Title IV • Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) • HIV/AIDS • Project 10
IMPACT • Students troubled by concerns for their safety resulting from experience with family violence, abuse, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, poverty, or living in gang territory are obviously not ready to learn. • Failure to address these problems which interfere with students’ academic and co curricular performance jeopardizes not only each student’s future, but also the healthy development of the entire school community.
IMPACT • IMPACT, the student assistance program in secondary schools, identifies these students and provides them assistance by referring them to the appropriate specialists or having them attend teacher-led support groups. • IMPACT is designed to provide students with the skills and support required for them to make positive life choices. The IMPACT Program is so named because it makes a positive impact on students’ lives. IMPACT is not a acronym.

PROJECT 10 • Project 10 is a Los Angeles Unified School District program that provides education and support services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) students, and other sexual minority youth. • Project 10 has at its core the establishment of confidential, voluntary support groups led by IMPACT-trained facilitators on the high school level. • The support groups provide a “safe zone” for discussions of “coming out” issues, school harassment, family relationships, health concerns, and self-empowerment.
