Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 63 -- Sex Education in Public Schools

Sponsor:  Davis

This bill revises the current requirements for presenting
information in public schools relating to contraception and
sexually transmitted diseases.  School districts and charter
schools are prohibited from providing abortion services or
allowing a person or entity who provides abortion services from
offering, sponsoring, or furnishing course materials related to
human sexuality and sexually transmitted diseases.  Information
on contraception must be consistent with federal abstinence
education law.  Course materials must also include the benefits
of a lifelong monogamous marriage between a man and a woman and
details of fetal developmental milestones.

Currently, curriculum materials must be made available for
inspection prior to their use.  The bill clarifies that the
materials should be available one week before use and also
requires that schools must make known the instructor's name and
any affiliation with an entity involved with human sexuality
instruction at least one week in advance.
