Staff Report

MIDLAND - It's being called an epidemic in the Midland School District and the Superintendent wants to take control.

You'll remember back in January, NewsWest 9 reported that Dr. Ryder Warren was very concerned because MISD had gotten their 100th request from a student for pregnancy services.

Well a few months later, that number has jumped to 154 girls who are now expecting a baby.

Even more concerning, a lot of those girls tested positive for some form of a sexually transmitted disease.

In a newsletter sent to the media, Dr. Warren says the district plans to take a proactive approach on the issue.

Next week at the board of trustees meeting, Dr. Warren will recommend a new sex education program for the district to adopt into their curriculum.
