Sexual Health Education
Washington state law requires annual HIV/AIDS prevention education beginning in grade 5, in accordance with the AIDS Omnibus Act.
The Healthy Youth Act for Comprehensive Sexual Education states that any parent or legal guardian who wishes to have their child excused from any planned instruction in sexual health education may do so. The family opt out form is at the right.
In addition, any parent or legal guardian may review the sexual health education curriculum offered in their child's school via written request with:
- the school district board of directors or its designee
- the principal of the school one's child attends
- the principal's designee
Parent(s) or legal guardian(s) will recieve an email once their request to review curriculum has been processed and their enrollment in the parents Canvas course is active. Link to request curriculum review is at the right.
