LISD HUMAN SEXUALITY PRESENTED BY LIFEGUARD
In Leander ISD, students in Grades 7–9 are taught Human Sexuality Curriculum through presentations by LifeGuard, an independent organization. The topics covered in this abstinence-based curriculum are found in the Texas Health TEKS. All content has been reviewed by the Leander ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) and is grade-level specific and developmentally appropriate.
Stiles Middle School 7th & 8th graders must opt-in (see below) to participate in the LifeGuard presentations set to take place September 14-21, 2021.
HOW CAN PARENTS/GUARDIANS PREVIEW THE MATERIAL?
If you wish to preview the curriculum, you may do so at your home campus library. Parents/Guardians may contact the school librarian to schedule an appointment for viewing. You may also request an electronic parent preview via the LifeGuard website.
Leander ISD will host virtual parent workshops via Zoom throughout the year; future times are listed below. Parent workshops are designed to give parents helpful tips for communicating with their children (grades 7-9) about human sexuality, allow them to review the district curriculum, explore statistics from health officials, and ask questions of LifeGuard and LISD staff.
