Public Act 102-0522, the Comprehensive Personal Health and Safety and Sexual Health Education Act, requires ISBE to adopt the National Sex Education Standards as the Illinois Learning Standards for sexual health education. These standards were adopted on June 14, 2022. Per the law, districts have the option to provide sexual health education instruction. School districts that choose to provide instruction in sexual health education must develop or select a curriculum that is aligned with the new standards. With the input of stakeholders, ISBE has compiled the list below for districts to use in selecting or developing a curriculum. Parents/guardians may opt their children out of such instruction, should a district choose to provide it by submitting a request in writing.
