K-12 / The Parents Right to Know Video

This video by the Alliance for Healthy Youth highlights two initiatives to support families. These are K-12 Standards for Optimal Sexual Health from the Medical Institute for Sexual Health and the Ohio Parents Right to Know Act.

The Standards advance wholeness and best science and involve a primary prevention approach to whole-person health. The Standards are risk avoidance focused instead of a risk reduction approach.

These standards align with the Alliance for Healthy Youth peer education and curriculum programs. The standards set clear expectations for attitudes and behaviors that will help students succeed in school.

The learning objectives are designed for all students, and the content includes all students, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity.

The Ohio Parents Right to Know Act pairs with the Standards so that students and their families can be assured of age-appropriate sexual risk avoidance education at their school.
