Comprehensive Sexual Health Education

In accordance with the requirements of the State of Oregon (OAR 581-022-1440) and School Board Policy (IGAI), the Ashland School District School board has adopted a Comprehensive Sexuality Education Program.  Curriculum for each grade level, textbooks, and other materials to be used with the sexual health unit have gone through a process that includes parent and community input and final adoption by the school board.   

The sexual health unit is designed to support parent/guardians as they educate their children.  The instruction emphasizes abstinence, but not to the exclusion of a contraception skills-based education.  The human sexuality information provided is comprehensive, complete, balanced, medically accurate, age-appropriate, not fear or shame-based, and inclusive.  The Oregon Department of Education has developed specific content standards adopted by the State School Board for each grade-level.
