The curriculum is available in the following formats:
Note: The prior Resource Guide will be re-labeled…Curriculum Guide
Additionally, the following: “Curriculum Guide” is available to assist teachers in planning and presenting the required lessons on Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The guide provides useful information, teaching strategies, and resources to teachers for grade/age appropriate dissemination to students in grades kindergarten through twelve.
A locally-produced videotape, entitled "Condom Sense," is available for use as an instructional resource. The running time for the video is approximately twenty minutes. The video, which is available from the Audiovisual Film and Video Distribution Center, is to be used in conjunction with the required five days of instruction based upon the Miami-Dade County Public Schools curriculum, "AIDS: Get The Facts!"
Teachers may use this tape to support both the Middle and Senior High School lesson plans that require lecture and discussion on the proper use of condoms. While the video demonstrates proper condom use, it advocates abstinence as the only certain way to prevent sexual transmission of HIV.
The lesson is presented in both a Middle School and Senior High School version. The scripts are virtually identical, but the ages of the student actors correlate to the intended use. In addition, each lesson is presented in three languages, in the following order on the tape:
- Middle School, English Version
- Senior High School, English Version
- Middle School, Spanish Version
- Senior High School, Spanish Version
- Middle School, Haitian Creole Version
- Senior High School, Haitian Creole Version

NOTE: We are currently working to update/revise our HIV/AIDS curriculum for the 2010-2011 academic year so it is consistent with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
