Comprehensive Sexual Health & HIV Prevention Education Parent Site

Welcome Families

The California Healthy Youth Act (AB 329), which took effect January 1, 2016, requires school districts to provide students with comprehensive sexual health education and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention education at least once in middle school and once in high school. Instruction and materials must be medically accurate, age‐appropriate and inclusive of all students. The law requires that instruction and materials must encourage students to communicate with parents, guardians or other trusted adults. Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) is committed to ensuring the well-being of all students, and will continue to do so by providing a medically accurate curriculum aligned with state legal requirements.
