This bill is the beginning of restoring parental rights and protecting elementary-age students from being exposed to inappropriate comprehensive sexual education in California schools.California’s AB 329 (The California Healthy Youth Act) took effect on January 1, 2016, and requires school districts to provide students with comprehensive sexual education, and instruction on HIV prevention. It is optional for each school district to implement this instruction for grades K-6 which can also include many inappropriate supplemental materials. This is what SB 673 does:
- Requires school districts that adopt elementary-age comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education curriculum to be transparent by making the materials available on their websites for parents to view.
- This bill would prevent students (K-6) from being automatically enrolled in comprehensive sexual education. Instead, parents who decide to have their children receive this education would need to fill out a written opt-in notification.
ALERT! SB 673 is scheduled to be heard this Wednesday, January 15th in the CA Senate Education Committee.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your CA representative may not be listed below. This is a call to action ONLY for people whose Senator is one of the members of the CA Senate Education Committee.
