Sexual Health & HIVAIDS


(Education Code §51938)

Comprehensive sexual health education and HIV/AIDS prevention education are taught in different classes by qualified personnel at both junior high and senior high levels. Instructional materials used in these courses have been approved by the Instructional Materials Review Committee and the Board of Trustees. Teachers use courses of study based upon the state standards. Staff notifies parents at the beginning of the school year or upon enrollment of the student regarding instruction in comprehensive sexual health education and HIV/AIDS prevention education, and who will be teaching these topics. If an outside consultant will provide instruction, parents will be notified of the date of instruction and the name of the organization the consultant is associated with. Parents may contact their child’s teacher to inspect written/audiovisual educational materials used and may request in writing that their child not receive instruction in sexual health education and HIV/AIDS prevention education.
