My apologies for the short notice. I just learned about this meeting this morning.
First parents presently must opt-in their students to receive sex education at school. Many parents in the district make this choice for their children. Sex education starts in 5th grade in Nevada. Nevada had the 4th highest teen pregnancy rate in the country at 84 per 1000 teens compared to the national average of 68 per 1000.
Check out this article from the Las Vegas Sun:
The meeting below is your opportunity to review information with the district about sex education and let your leaders know where you stand on the issue.
The ACLU of Nevada is a proud member of the Nevada Teen Health and Safety Coalition (NTHSC). As part of the coalition, we invite you to participate in the Clark County School District Sex Education Community Input Forums scheduled for later this month. SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States) will be presenting on medically accurate sex education.
