EXEMPTION FROM AIDS INSTRUCTION POLICY
Education is the best way to prevent the spread of AIDS, and through learning the facts about AIDS, students are better able to make decisions which will keep them healthy and even save their lives. Various school district curricula, including health curricula, science curricula, and social studies curricula among others may include information on AIDS – both its cause and prevention.
Students will be exempt from instruction on acquired immune deficiency syndrome upon written request of the parent/guardian in accordance with state statutes.
