Relating to local school health advisory councils and health
education provided by school districts, including requirements
regarding human sexuality instruction.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 442 would require school boards to appoint a five member board to the local school health advisory council to make recommendations regarding the adoption of human sexuality curriculum and would require public meetings allowing public comment on the adoption of this curriculum. The health advisory board would be required to publish the meeting minutes to the school website.
SB 42 would mandate that if human sexuality instruction is provided, at the beginning of the school year, a detailed description of content is provided to parents.
Texas Action supports SB 442 on the principles of limited government and individual liberty. This bill would create more transparency in the adoption of human sexuality curriculum giving parents the opportunity to make decisions that best fit the needs of their children.
