Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Curriculum Selection

Ahead of the 2021-22 school year, HSD will select a new comprehensive sexual health curriculum that aligns with state learning standards. Last Updated: 4/15/2021 9:32 PM

Per Senate Bill 5395, which requires that all Washington public schools provide comprehensive sexual health education (CSHE) instruction that meets state standards, the HSD must select a new CSHE curriculum for use across the district, which will be phased in over the next two years. The new curriculum must be:

 

  • medically and scientifically accurate; 
  • evidence-informed and age appropriate; 
  • aligned with health and learning standards; and 
  • inclusive of all students regardless of their protected class status.

 

The bill defines comprehensive sexual health education as recurring instruction in human development and reproduction that is age-appropriate and inclusive of all students. There is no sexual health content required for students in grades K–3. For these younger grades, the curriculum content is focused on social-emotional learning. As has always been the case, parents and guardians have the right to opt their children out of sexual health education instruction at any time.
