Carmel High juniors will participate in a judgment improvement workshop planned for Nov. 19 after the program was postponed twice due to student, parent and teacher dissatisfaction with its scheduling.
The Botvin LifeSkills program will be delivered in age-appropriate iterations to students grades three through eight throughout Carmel Unified School District, as well as to students in health class at CHS. Junior year will be the last year that LifeSkills will be delivered.
LifeSkills is designed to promote improved decision-making, time management and communication during and after high school, counselor Jennifer Goodbody says.
“These really are skills for life,” Goodbody stresses. “There’s a misconception that this is a class about drug and alcohol awareness, and it isn’t.”
