Policy

The content of Physical and Health Education K-10 and Career Life Education 10 addresses topics related to sexual decision-making that some students and their parents/guardians may feel more comfortable addressing in an alternate setting.
 
Physical and Health Education K-10 and Career Life Education 10 are required curriculum for all students.
 
While acknowledging the necessity for latitude and for diversity in methods of implementation among the schools, the Board expects the staff of each school to plan, organize, and provide learning opportunities for Physical and Health Education K-10 and Career Life Education 10.
 
In some cases, students and their parents/guardians, in consultation with their school, may choose not to participate in classes when topics related to sexual decision-making are discussed. Instead, the parent/guardian will address the topics in an agreed upon alternative manner. It is expected that students will demonstrate their understanding of the health topic(s) they have chosen to learn in an alternative manner.
 
Opting for alternative delivery is only available for the topics related to sexual decision-making that are part of Physical and Health Education K-10 and Career Life Education 10. This policy does not apply to any other learning standards in Physical and Health Education K-10 and Career Life Education 10. Nor does it apply to any other British Columbia provincial curriculum.
