(Gervais, OR)  --  A school district in Marion County says it will make condoms available to students as young as sixth-graders in an attempt to slow the rate of teen pregnancy.  Gervais School District Superintendent Rick Hensel says the policy will go into effect in the fall.  Hensel says students will be required to discuss the issue with a trained professional, such as a nurse or counselor, before being given condoms.
