Comprehensive Sexual Health Education - Parent Preview Night

Comprehensive Sexual Health Education - Parent Preview Night

As part of the 7th Grade Science Class, we will be starting a comprehensive sexual health and family life education unit. California state law requires HIV and comprehensive sexuality education be taught in middle school and in high school. The District shall follow state laws (Education Code 51930 - 51939). The instructional unit will be taught by trained school district personnel and will begin on April 15, 2019 through May 29, 2019. 

There will be a parent preview meeting where you will have the opportunity to view the curriculum to be used this year. Teachers will provide an overview of the lessons, simulate classroom activities, and answer questions. Curriculum will be available to examine.

If you are not able to attend the parent preview night and want to examine instructional materials, including assessments, please contact the school district office or your child’s classroom teacher to make an appointment to do so. If you have questions, please see your child’s teacher or principal. State law allows you to remove your student from the comprehensive sexual health education course. If you do not want your student to participate in this sexual health course, please provide a note to your student’s Science Teacher by April 5, 2019.

If you have any questions, please call or email your student’s Science Teacher. We look forward to seeing you at the parent preview meeting. A letter will be mailed home to students the week of March 4th.
