Comprehensive Sexual Health Education

 

In January 2016, California adopted the new law that requires comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education to be taught in public schools. Education Code Sections 51930-51939. Comprehensive sexual health education must be taught once in middle school and once in high school. All instruction in all grades must be age-appropriate and medically accurate. Comprehensive sexual health education must address the needs of students of all gender and sexual orientations. Parents must be notified that their student will receive sexual health and HIV prevention education and be allowed to view the materials prior to instruction. Instruction must be appropriate for students with disabilities, English language learners, and students of all races, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
