Positive Prevention Curriculum

  • Duarte Unified School District will be providing instruction in comprehensive sexual health education and HIV/AIDS prevention for all 7th and 9th grade students in accordance with state law.

    The purpose of the California Healthy Youth Act (Education Codes 51930 - 51939) is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to protect their sexual and reproductive health from unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. 

    Positive Prevention Plus curriculum is used by the 7th grade science teachers to educate students about making informed decisions for a healthy lifestyle. This curriculum encourages students to communicate with parents, guardians or other trusted adults about human sexuality. Instruction must be medically accurate, age‐appropriate and inclusive of all students.

    Parents are invited to preview the curriculum for Grade 9 (Semester 2 Health Class) and all Grade 7 students between February 3-7, 2020, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm at the school offices of Duarte High, Andres Duarte, Beardslee, Maxwell, and Royal Oaks.

    If you have questions, please see the teacher or principal. State law allows you to remove your student from this instruction. If you DO NOT  want your student to participate in comprehensive sexual health or HIV prevention education, please notify our Educational Services Department by sending an email to nhillman@duarteusd.org or call (626) 599-5012.
