    Excusing Students from Sex Education Instruction 

    Parents or guardians may have their children excused from planned instruction in sex education. A written request shall be filed with the principal. Alternative instructional activities shall be provided those students who are excused from planned instruction in sex education. 

    Sexual health education instruction offered by the district will be medically and scientifically accurate, age appropriate, appropriate for students regardless of gender, race, disability status, or sexual orientation and include information about abstinence and other methods of preventing unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Abstinence will not be taught to the exclusion of other instruction on contraceptives and disease prevention. The district’s sexual health education program will be consistent with the Guidelines for Sexual Health Information and Disease Prevention developed by the Department of Health and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. 

    The superintendent will provide parents/guardians an opportunity to review the materials to be used and provide information on excluding their child from sexual health education instruction.
