Health

            The Alabama Health course of study consists of sixteen standards designed to help students learn about and take responsibility for their own health. Topics include personal health, social health, and environmental health, and influences and variables which may affect them. Effects and consequences of both positive and negative health decisions are covered with emphasis on chemical substance abuse and other risky behaviors. More information on the Health course of study can be found at http://alex.state.al.us/standardAll.php?grade=9&subject=HE1&summary=2 .
