HUman Sexuality and Abstinence Education

In North East ISD, we use the Choosing the Best Human Sexuality and Abstinence Education curriculum. This abstinence based program begins in 6th grade Health and continues into 7th and 8th grade Physical Education classes. In order for a student to participate in this program, a signed permission slip must be filled out by their parent or legal guardian. The curriculum is available to preview at your student's campus during "Parent Preview." Please view the calendar to see dates of the Parent Previews.
