California Healthy Youth Act

In January 2016, the state approved the California Healthy Youth Act. This law requires that all school districts provide comprehensive sexual health education and disease prevention to students at least once in middle school and at least once in high school. The SJUSD School Board approved that this curriculum be delivered in grades 8 and 9. These education programs are meant to encourage students to communicate with their parents, guardians, or other trusted adults about human sexuality and healthy relationships. The information provided will be medically accurate, age-appropriate, and inclusive of all students.

Please note that this instruction will be delivered by Planned Parenthood at San José High School in 9th Grade PE classes from October 30 - November 15, 2017, in order to guarantee that students receive accurate information from Health Educators in the field.

If you want to learn more about the program, please attend one of the scheduled Parent Information Nights:
