How are boys and girls kept apart?

The boys are in Pods together, usually by age.  The girls have their own Pods.  Boys and girls do not share a Pod. The one exception is an area of Orcas Cottage called the Close Attention Program (CAP).  There are 7 bedrooms.  The building design is such that each bedroom door is visible from the day area.  Both boys and girls may reside in the Close Attention Program.  Boys and girls are allowed to mix in the day hall, the dining room, daily outings and school.  Normal life goes on but with several watchful eyes.
