Reproductive Health & Disease Prevention Education
  • As part of the DCPS K-12 Comprehensive Health Education program, the Reproductive Health and Disease Prevention Education curriculum provides medically accurate, age-appropriate information about abstinence, as well as safer sex practices including contraception and condoms, as effective ways to reduce unintended pregnancy and STIs. The curriculum also incorporates information about healthy relationships, communication skills, and human development, among other topics. Abstinence until marriage is the expected standard for all students. However, students are reminded that if they choose to become sexually active, STIs, HIV, and unintended pregnancy are potential consequences of unprotected sex.

    Throughout the curriculum, students are encouraged to initiate parental discussions to determine personal values with relation to sexual activity and this communication should serve as their first source of support. Students are also reminded about counseling services provided within the school district as well as community resources.
