HEALTH CURRICULUM OPT OUT PROVISIONS
Prior to instruction each semester (secondary) or year (elementary), each school is responsible for disseminating health curriculum information to parents. This information should include the topics to be covered in the curriculum and the information on the District opt out policy.

Parents are responsible for annually following the opt out procedure contained in regulation to utilize this option.

Parents may choose to opt out their child from specific topics or the entire curriculum at the elementary level and specific topics (to a maximum of three class days) or the entire curriculum at the middle or high school levels. Students at the middle and high school levels will be required to take a one semester correspondence course in place of the regular curriculum if they opt out of the entire curriculum.
