California Healthy Youth Act

Comprehensive Sexual Education Program (CSEP)

 

Overview:

 

Norwalk - La Mirada Unified School District’s Comprehensive Sexual Education Program (CSEP) is based on education and prevention strategies that are researched-based and aim to increase the health, academic success, and overall well-being of our students. The Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Program is implemented in high school (9th grade science course). All curricula follows CA Education Code requirements, including new topics required by the CA Healthy Youth Act that went into effect in 2016.

 

Sexual health education aims to prevent teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease as well as assist students with developing interpersonal skills, responsible behavior, and goal setting. The curriculum emphasizes decision-making and refusal skills, identifying healthy and unhealthy relationships, and communicating with trusted adults about sexual health. The program also provides schools and students with information regarding safe and legal access to sexual health services, supports for LGBTQ-inclusive environments, and additional interventions for schools with higher percentages of students at risk for HIV/STDs and unplanned pregnancies.
