FAMILY LIFE AND HUMAN SEXUALITY (FLHS) AND DISEASE PREVENTION AND CONTROL (DPC) UNITS FOR HEALTH EDUCATION INSTRUCTION
Students will participate in FLHS and DPC instruction unless written parent/guardian permission is submitted excluding the student from receiving instruction related to human sexuality and/or sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. You may choose to have your student excused from either or both of these units. If excused, your student will participate in other health education units of instruction under the supervision of a professional in an instructional setting.
