Comprehensive Sexual Health Education (CSHE)

Washington state updated policies in 2020 requiring comprehensive sexual health education is provided to students in grades 4–12. Research shows that CSHE is a protective factor in sexual abuse prevention. When young people are taught that no one has the right to touch them without their consent, they are more likely to tell a trusted adult if that ever happens. Additionally, teaching about boundary setting and affirmative consent has been shown to have a positive correlation with forming healthy relationships later in life. 

Franklin Pierce School District has historically provided sexual health education for students. Curriculum updates in recent years align our work with legislative requirements.
