Human Sexuality Curriculum

Texas House Bill 1525 and Opt-In Requirement

During the 87th Texas Legislative Session, Texas House Bill 1525 was adopted, mandating that parents or legal guardians must opt-in their students to participate in a Human Sexuality curriculum.

Implementation in Anna ISD

In Anna ISD, students in Grades 5-12 receive instruction on the Human Sexuality Curriculum through presentations conducted by 180 Degrees, a non-profit organization. Parents are provided the opportunity to opt-in for their children's participation during annual registration. Students whose parents do not opt them in will not take part in the program.

Parental Involvement and Importance of Home Education

Anna ISD emphasizes that sex education should begin at home. Parents or legal guardians are recognized as the primary educators of their children and play a pivotal role in influencing their health decisions. The lessons provided in school are designed to complement and reinforce what parents or legal guardians are teaching at home, rather than replacing it.

180 Degrees Program

The 180 Degrees program is a sexual risk avoidance initiative designed to educate teenagers about the consequences of premarital sex and promote healthy marriage relationships. The curriculum has been reviewed by the Anna ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) to ensure its content is grade-level specific and developmentally appropriate.

Parental Engagement Opportunities

In-person parent presentations are scheduled prior to student presentations. For more detailed information about the curriculum, parents can visit the 180 Degrees website.
