Human SexualitY Curriculum
What is LISD Human Sexuality Curriculum Presented By LifeGuard?
In Leander ISD, students in Grades 7–9 are taught Human Sexuality Curriculum through presentations by LifeGuard, an independent organization. The topics covered in this abstinence-based curriculum are found in the Texas Health TEKS. All content has been reviewed by the Leander ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) and is grade-level specific and developmentally appropriate.
Texas House Bill 1525 requires that students must opt-in to participate in the LifeGuard presentations. Please see below to access the opt-in form.
When will VLA host LifeGuard this year?
7th and 8th grade students will have presentations on May 12th, 15th, & 16th during PE.
How can parents/guardians preview the material?
If you wish to preview the curriculum, you may do so at your home campus. Parents/Guardians may contact their campus to schedule an appointment for viewing.
LISD will host a virtual parent workshop via Zoom; future times are listed below. Parent workshops are designed to give parents helpful tips for communicating with their children (grades 7-9) about human sexuality, allow them to review the district curriculum, explore statistics from health officials, and ask questions of LifeGuard and LISD staff.
