Comprehensive Health

Comprehensive Health Education is required instruction per Florida Statute 1003.42. The curriculum includes components of health that are age and developmentally appropriate. New laws enacted in 2023 by the Florida Legislature require that the state approve the curriculum Florida public schools use for this purpose. More information will be given soon as it is received from the State of Florida Department of Education. As of 2/15/24, the FDOE has not given approval of any of the district resources used for teaching this content. The state is seeking an additional review process for all districts that has yet to begin. More info will be provided as it becomes available. 


Parents/guardians have the right to opt their child out of any portion of the school district’s comprehensive health education required under 1003.42(2)(n) that relates to sex education instruction in acquired immune deficiency syndrome education or any instruction regarding reproductive health. Options for opting out will be provided once it is known when curriculum resources are approved and instruction can begin. Updated 2/16/24.
