Parents often do not receive notification due to lack of follow through or due to form getting lost in the shuffle.
Let us put you in contact with other people and organizations who are actively involved in helping to protect the health and innocence of children in your state.
Use the form below to send us your name, city, state, school district, and any questions or concerns you may have about CSE in your state, and we will connect you with people from your state or one of our national representatives.
Know what parental rights are available to utilize. Most legislation/policy has laws about parental involvement, notification, opt-out/in, and consent. Demand follow through on these policies.
15-102. Parental involvement in the school; definition
The governing board may adopt a policy to provide to parents the information required by this section in an electronic form.
A parent shall submit a written request for information pursuant to this section during regular business hours to either the school principal at the school site or the superintendent of the school district at the office of the school district. Within ten days after receiving the request for information, the school principal or the superintendent of the school district shall either deliver the requested information to the parent or submit to the parent a written explanation of the reasons for the denial of the requested information. If the request for information is denied or the parent does not receive the requested information within fifteen days after submitting the request for information, the parent may submit a written request for the information to the school district governing board, which shall formally consider the request at the next scheduled public meeting of the governing board if the request can be properly noticed on the agenda. If the request cannot be properly noticed on the agenda, the governing board shall formally consider the request at the next subsequent public meeting of the governing board.
For the purposes of this section, “parent” means the natural or adoptive parent or legal guardian of a minor child.
State Laws are established by state legislatures, while sex education policies are implemented by the local state department of education. The information below is intended for comparison purposes so that individuals can determine if their school’s sex education programs are in compliance with state regulations.
