Comprehensive Sexual Health Education

Senate Bill 5395 was passed by the Legislature and Washington voters in 2020 and went into effect on December 3, 2020. It requires all public schools to provide comprehensive sexual health education by the 2022–23 school year, with some requirements beginning in the 2020-21 school year.

 Instruction must be consistent with Health Education K-12 Learning Standards, which provide a framework for comprehensive instruction and the provisions of the law. Instruction must also be age- appropriate, medically and scientifically accurate, and inclusive of all students, using language and strategies that recognize all members of protected classes.

Following recommendations from the Instructional Materials Committee, District Leadership Team, Parents, and the Equity Committee, the board deliberated and adopted this curriculum for Comprehensive Sexual Health Education.

This curriculum has lessons selected from the Rights, Respect, Responsibility curriculum. Lessons were selected based on alignment with standards and the sensibilities of our community. Parents may elect to opt their children out of this instruction. Toledo Schools will only use the lessons listed on this page. Lesson delivery will begin in 2022 after staff training and preparation.

For families choosing to deliver this instruction at home, we offer a link to the full Rights, Respect, Responsibility curriculum in hopes that the resource will assist with home instruction on this important subject.

Please contact your child's school for questions regarding this curriculum and its implementation.
