Human Sexuality Curriculum
In Boerne ISD, students in Grades 7–9 are taught Human Sexuality Curriculum from Scott & White. The Worth the Wait® Sex Education Curriculum is used in grade 7, and Wellness & Sexual Health® in the high school health course. The programs empower teens with information necessary to develop healthy habits and relationships, and each ten-lesson unit is based upon medical and legal facts regarding teen sexual activity and teaches abstinence as the healthiest choice for teens.
BISD believes that sexuality education begins at home. Parents or legal guardians are the primary educators of their children and can be the most important influence on your child’s health decisions. The lessons your child will receive in school are designed to reinforce what a parent or legal guardian is teaching at home, not to replace it.
