Cabarrus Co. cancels controversial sex survey for middle schoolers

“Parents, wake up. Come on, we have to know what’s going on, we’ve got to pay attention to what’s going on with our kids, to stop this growing

Cabarrus Health Alliance is one of 22 Office of Adolescent Health grant awardees in the nation. The goal of the project is to demonstrate how the program components lead to the decrease in teen pregnancy rates. The collection of information by way of surveys is a requirement of the grant as well as required questions regarding sexual activity.

On behalf of the Cabarrus Health Alliance, Cabarrus County Schools has been administering this required survey. Cabarrus County Schools did not develop the survey and their role was limited to administering the survey. In no way is Cabarrus County Schools responsible for the contents of the survey. That responsibility rests solely with Cabarrus Health Alliance.

Over the last few days, we have been made aware of concerns from parents regarding the survey. Cabarrus County Schools is an invaluable partner and has worked diligently to field and respond to questions and concerns. We appreciate their work and apologize for the strain this has caused on the system.

Together, Cabarrus Health Alliance and Cabarrus County Schools have made the decision to end the survey and discuss future programming with the Office of Adolescent Health. We understand that this may result in the loss of funding for this very valuable program.
