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: 10/1/2021 10:56 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.

 

Materials Review

Beginning October 1, Hockinson families have the opportunity to review the above materials.  This review window will run through Thursday, October 14

Reviewers will fill out an online feedback form for each book reviewed.  This form is the rubric required by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). Links to the forms are available below. PLEASE NOTE: There are two different review forms: One for the four middle school materials and another for the high school text.

This community review process will occur concurrent to our curriculum adoption process that involves the Curriculum Adoption Committee and Instructional Materials Committee. 

The School Board would like to thank families for their interest in reviewing these materials and appreciates your patience as we work through the curriculum adoption process.
