Policy No. 2125

Health, family life, sex education and human sexuality including information about parts of the body, the study of the anatomy and the physiology of human reproduction, and characteristics or qualities that distinguish between maleness and femaleness may be included in the instructional program as appropriate to the grade level and course of study. Interested parents and community groups shall be encouraged to become involved in the planning, development, evaluation, and revision of any instruction in sex education and human sexuality offered as a part of the school program. Parents may ask to review the materials to be used and may, in writing, request that
their child be excluded from sex education and human sexuality classes.

The superintendent will distribute forms to parents who wish to exercise this right. Students who are excused shall be provided alternative educational opportunities.

The superintendent is authorized to develop and implement the necessary regulations for the administration of this policy.
