Sex ed that supports new state law goes before FSUSD board – Daily Republic

By Ryan McCarthy

Sex education starting in the seventh grade with instruction that includes affirmatively recognizing people have different sexual orientations and discussing same-sex relationships is among 18 board polices that go before Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees when they meet Thursday.

Instruction about the harm of negative gender stereotypes is also part of the California Healthy Youth Act that the school district’s curriculum would support.

The Fairfield-Suisun School District board policy includes notifying parents that they can request in writing that their child be excused from participating in sexual health and HIV prevention education.
