SEX EDUCATION

 

 

In order to better educate and meet the growing awareness of today's youth, the 1979 Louisiana Legislature has granted to School Boards within the state the discretion, if so desired, of conducting classes in subject matter designated as sex education.  Said subject matter shall be integrated into an existing course of study in grades seven through twelve.

 

No religious beliefs, values, customs or the subjective moral or ethnic judgments of any person shall be included in the study of sex education.

 

All instructional materials used during the course of study of sex education shall be submitted to and approved by the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board and by a parental review committee, whose membership shall be determined by the Board.

 

Any child may be excused from receiving instruction in sex education at the option and discretion of his parent or guardian.  Procedures of excusing students from instruction shall be as set forth by the Board.
