We want our kids to be healthy and safe.
Sexual health education teaches adolescents to either delay or abstain from sexual activity and use birth control and condoms consistently and correctly if they do engage in sexual activity.

Quality sex ed provides a foundation for a lifetime of positive sexual health outcomes.
Sexual health education provides information about physical development, relationships, sex, and sexuality, along with skills-building to help young people make informed decisions and set life goals. Young people learn about important topics like puberty and adolescent development, healthy relationships, abstinence, condoms, consent, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, communication skills, sexual violence prevention, gender identity, sexual orientation, and the importance of talking with a trusted adult.

Sexual health education helps young people protect themselves.
High-quality, evidence-based sexual health education teaches young people about unhealthy relationships, human trafficking, sexual violence prevention, and other abusive behaviors, to report these behaviors, and to seek help from safe, trusted adults if they have questions or need to report abuse.

Parents have a right to ensure their children receive quality sexual health education.
Most Tulsa parents feel it’s important for youth to receive sexual health education, and they want their children to have a sexual health curriculum at school. Parents and guardians always have the right to review the curriculum, attend parent preview nights to meet educators, and decide whether their student will participate. If a parent does not want their student to receive any sexual health curriculum, they can complete an opt-out form, provided by the school district, and their student will be excused.

Young people say they want honest, accurate information from a trusted adult.
Having honest and accurate talks with young people about sex, love, and relationships helps to prepare them to make healthy choices and plan for their future.

Evidence-based sexual health education reduces unplanned pregnancy, STIs, and violence.
Sex ed reduces the chance youth will have an unplanned pregnancy, contract a sexually transmitted infection, or experience sexual violence.

Quality sexual health education helps young people make the best decisions for themselves.
Evidence-based sexual health education programs have been rigorously evaluated and show positive impacts like delaying the onset of sexual activity. Additionally, these curricula show an increase in contraceptive use if or when participants decide to become sexually active.


Sex ed is taught to every student in 7th-grade science and high school biology at TPS unless a parent opts their student out.


Different communities have different needs. We have multiple curricula to choose from.
