BOULDER VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT RE-2
HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAM PARENTAL EXCUSAL REQUEST
Under Colorado law, parents may excuse students from any portion or portions of the School District’s comprehensive health education, including human sexuality education.
Please be assured that Boulder Valley teachers receive specialized training in the appropriate presentation of health education topics. Therefore, we encourage parents to discuss their concerns with the instructor and principal before submitting this form.
It is important to be aware that, while it is possible to excuse students from planned instruction in health education, some topics also may be addressed in other areas of the BVSD curriculum and in student speech.
To determine those portions of the health education program from which you may wish to excuse your student, please review the BVSD Evidence Outcomes for Health Education for the appropriate grade level. The full course description for each grade is accessible at: https://www.bvsd.org/parents-students/academics
