Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education

Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, 3 Edition
Kindergarten through 12th Grade
For over a decade, SIECUS has published the
Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education:  Kindergarten-12th Grade to help educators create new sexuality education programs and evaluate already existing curricula. The Guidelines, developed by a national task force of experts in the fields of adolescent development, health care, and education, provide a framework of the key concepts, topics, and messages that all sexuality education programs would ideally include.
This Third Edition of the Guidelines is based on the work of the original National Guidelines Task Force; the basic structure and content remain the same. Certain topics, messages, and age-levels, however, have been changed to reflect new information and the reality that today’s young people are facing. In addition, we have added a section on using the Guidelines that provides specific advice, ideas, and resources to help educators implement this important framework into their efforts to provide high-quality sexuality education to young people in their schools and communities.
