Sexual Health Education
Sexual Health Announcement
Beginning Monday, March 11, 2019 your child will receive Sexual Health Education during health classes as part of the CPS Sexual Health Education Policy. The Board acknowledges that parents/guardians are the primary sexuality educators for their child/children and National Teachers Academy is committed to partnering with parents/guardians to provide supplementary instruction to students via the sexual health education lessons. CPS has provided a well thought out curriculum that has a scope and sequence for each grade level located at the web address http://www.ntaeaglespe.com/sexual-health-education.html
In alignment with Illinois State Code 105 ILCS 110/3 (No pupil shall be required to take or participate in any class or course on AIDS or family life instruction if his parent or guardian submits written objection thereto, and refusal to take or participate in the course or program shall not be reason for suspension or expulsion of the pupil), no student shall be suspended or expelled for refusal to participate in any such course with submitted objection.
