Heart_Icon_Transparent  Comprehensive Personal Health and Safety and Sexual Education Act (Public Act 102-0522)

On June 14, 2022, the Illinois State Board of Education adopted the National Sex Education Standards as the Illinois Learning Standards for sexual health education. This was done in compliance with The Comprehensive Personal Health and Safety and Sexual Health Education Act.

  • Parents/guardians have the opportunity to opt their children out of the instruction
