Dear CVUSD Families,
Following an extensive review process last school year that included stakeholder engagement meetings and public discussion at Board of Education meetings, CVUSD adopted new Comprehensive Sexual Health & HIV/AIDS instruction materials for 7th and 9th grade to be in compliance with the California Healthy Youth Act (2016). Here is the timeline for when the new student materials will be available:
High school 9th grade student materials are now available to examine here. Only these specific handouts, presentations, and activities will be presented to students.
Middle school instruction for 7th grade students will not occur until Spring 2022.
Student materials for 7th grade students and some specialized special education programs will be made available on this website in the coming months.
California Education Code 51938(a) states "A parent or guardian of a pupil has the right to excuse their child from all or part of comprehensive sexual health education, HIV prevention education, and assessments related to that education through a passive consent (“opt-out”) process. A school district shall not require active parental consent (“opt-in”) for comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education." This notification (English / Spanish) is modified from the CA Department of Education's sample letter and will be provided in advance to the parent/guardian by the student's teacher or administrator.
