The Austin ISD sexuality education program has been established to provide information and skill development for students in Pre-K through grade 12 so that they may reach their highest potential for physical, emotional, mental and social health. The district's core values include high expectations, respect for the individual, resources to support student needs, and shared ownership and commitment.
In November 2018, AISD held three public meetings and sent a survey to all families to gather input regarding possible updates to the district's human sexuality and responsibility curriculum. View the results from the survey online
