The Kent School District believes the primary responsibility for education about human sexuality rests with the family. The school can assist families by developing programs that teach abstinence, responsibility, honesty, integrity and caring in human sexuality.
The goal in all cases must be healthy and responsible behavior. Education about human sexuality includes the physiological, psychological and sociological aspects of human growth, development, and reproduction. In addition, it includes an understanding of influences affecting interpersonal relationships and emphasizes responsible decision-making.
Parents may review the materials to be used and may, in writing, request that their children be excluded from human sexuality classes. Students who are excused will be provided alternative educational opportunities.
