High School Sexual Health

In accordance with district policy 2125 and Washington State laws (RCW 28A.230.070, RCW 28A.300.475, WAC 392-410-140), Battle Ground Public Schools offers instruction in sexual health education to all high school students enrolled in a health class.

You may have heard that Battle Ground Public Schools is in the process of adopting a new sexual health curriculum for use in high school health classes. Please visit the Curriculum Adoption page to get more information about the curriculum adoption process. Until a new curriculum is adopted, the district will use materials previously approved by the board to teach sexual health.

Opt-Out form

If, after reviewing the curriculum, parents/guardians of students currently enrolled in a high school health class would like to opt-out their high school child(ren) from any of these units, you will need to complete the online Opt-Out Form for High School Sexual Health. Please note that even if you have previously opted out your child from sexual health, HIV/AIDS or growth and development lessons, you will need to opt them out of high school sexual health education. Students who are opted out of these lessons will be given an alternative, required health assignment.

Information from Community Forums

In September 2019, we invited the public to a series of Community Forums where concerned parents and community members could review proposed curriculum materials and ask questions. You can review the slideshow that was presented at these forums: High School Sexual Health Community Review Nights Presentation (PDF).

At the conclusion of these events, we compiled a list of the questions and answers that came up at these community information forums: High School Sexual Health Community Questions, Answers, and Comments (PDF).
