Required Letter to Parents Regarding Implementation of the District HIV / AIDS Curriculum

As you are aware, HIV/AIDS Education is required for all students, kindergarten through grade twelve. However, Florida law, 1003.42(3), allows parents who do not wish their child to participate in the AIDS curriculum to opt out by sending a letter to the principal. The attached sample letter to parents, translated in Haitian Creole and Spanish, is provided to assist you in the notification process.

Please provide a copy of this letter, on school stationery, to parents of all students about to begin instruction involved with any HIV/AIDS related curricula. As an alternative, in grades where a permission letter for Human Growth and Development is required, that letter will suffice, provided HIV/AIDS Education is included with a listing of other curricular topics.

Where special activities related to HIV/AIDS education are provided outside the scope of the curriculum, a similar notification letter should be provided to parents.
