The Public Schools Project was developed to assess the sexual health education being provided to students in local high schools. Planned Parenthood affiliates of Southern California audited the curricula of secondary high school districts to determine whether they were meeting the specifications for comprehensive sex education set forth in the California Education Code.
This website serves as a resource for parents, students, and educators interested in improving the sexual health education taught in their community.
Learn what's being taught in your school district and how you can ensure that the teens in your district are getting the information they need to be safe, make informed choices, and act responsibly.
