Content of Human Sexuality Instruction

The Board shall determine the specific content of the District's instruction in human sexuality.
The Board shall select any instruction relating to human sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) with the advice of the local school health advisory council.  The instruction must:

1.  Present abstinence as the preferred choice of behavior for unmarried persons of school age;

2.  Devote more attention to abstinence than to any other behavior;

3.  Emphasize that abstinence is the only method that is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, infection with HIV or AIDS, and the emotional trauma associated with adolescent sexual activity;

4.  Direct adolescents to a standard of behavior in which abstinence before marriage is the most effective way to prevent pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and infection with HIV or AIDS.

5.  Teach contraception and condom use in terms of human use reality rates instead of theoretical laboratory rates, if instruction on contraception and condoms is included in the curriculum.
