2020 FLE Recommended Changes.docx
Summary: VDOE states that Virginia's standards for family life education provide a comprehensive, sequential K-12 curriculum. They include age-appropriate instruction in family living and community relationships, abstinence education, the value of postponing sexual activity, the benefits of adoption as a positive choice in the event of an unwanted pregnancy, human sexuality and human reproduction. Instruction is designed to promote parental involvement, foster positive self concepts and provide mechanisms for coping with peer pressure and the stresses of modern living according to the students' developmental stages and abilities. Parents have the right to review the complete family life curricula, including all supplemental materials used in any family life education program.

In September 2019 an ACPS Family Life Education (FLE) Advisory Board met to review the current FLE standards. Attached are the suggested changes the Advisory Board is making for 2020-2021 implementation.

In addition, please review page 2 (Board Statement), page 3 (Goals), & page 4 (Value Statement) to see if these articulate the School Board accurately. These can be found on the Google Link under Enclosure.
