Wasn’t comprehensive sexual health education already required?
Previously, districts were only required to provide HIV/AIDS prevention once in junior high. Only districts that chose to provide sexual health education were required to do so in a comprehensive, medically accurate, and age appropriate way. Now, we still teach about HIV/AIDS prevention, and we are mandated to include sexually transmitted infections (STIs), formerly known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), to the health curriculum. This expansion of the requirements mandates school districts to teach the health risks associated with STIs.
