Human Sexual Health Education Curriculum
Florida House Bill 1739 which became law on June 29, 1990, mandated all counties to offer a comprehensive health curriculum dealing with the aspects of human sexuality.
This curriculum reflects a commitment to support parents and the family as well as influence the development of positive, healthy behaviors. The lessons are designed to foster positive self-concept, self-respect, responsible relationships, as well as avoidance of high-risk behaviors. Lessons and activities are developmentally appropriate and include appropriate terminology, anatomical functions, as well as situational awareness.
This curriculum is taught in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade and in H.O.P.E at the high school level. Human Sexuality Curriculum guides and videos are available for viewing at each school site. Parents should contact their students school adminstration if they wish to preview the materials.
