Sexual Health Education
As part of the district’s health curriculum and to fulfill a graduation requirement, students are taught about sexual health and HIV/AIDS prevention. The teaching of HIV/AIDS prevention is required by the state each year beginning in the fifth grade. You can learn more about our curriculum in the links below.
Parents may choose to exclude their child from either sexual health or HIV/AIDS education by attending a presentation or reviewing instructional materials, and submitting the form.
