Description: Our school district is currently working on establishing a blended comprehensive sexual health curriculum. We are using the FLASH Curriculum, the sexual education network and Advocates for Youth’s Rights, Respect, Responsibility : A K-12 Curriculum as resources.
FLASH is a widely used comprehensive sexual health education curriculum developed by Public Health Seattle–King County designed to prevent teen pregnancy, STDs, and sexual violence, and is available for elementary, middle, high school and special education classrooms. FLASH lessons prepare students to: abstain from sex, confirm consent before engaging in sexual activity, communicate with their family about sexual health, make decisions that minimize risk to their sexual health, seek medical care in order to take care of their reproductive health.
Sexual Education Network has over 100 lesson plans, including handouts, on a comprehensive list of topics, from puberty to senior citizens and includes discussion forums to describe the successes, challenges, and adaptations of different lessons.
Rights, Respect, Responsibility : A K-12 Curriculum fully meets the National Sexuality Education Standards and covers all 16 topics recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as essential components of sexual health education. It is inclusive for issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity and includes family homework activities resources for educators at every grade level.
