Health Education Curriculum Update #2- SB 288

The Ohio Department of Education and Workforce (DEW), formally called the Ohio Department of Education, has shared with public schools across the state Senate Bill 288.  This legislation requires that health education curricula be updated to include (K-12/developmentally appropriate) prevention education information in the areas of sexual abuse and sexual violence for students in public schools.

As promised, the district is providing an opportunity for families to review the curriculum, and parents may opt their students out of the lessons if they choose.  For more information from the Ohio Department of Education- Click HERE.  Instruction will be provided during the week of October 16, 2023.
