Legislative Updates

Assembly Bill 329

On October 1, 2015, Governor Brown signed the California Healthy Youth Act (AB 329), which will become effective January 1, 2016. This bill requires that all pupils in grades 7 to 12 receive comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education from instructors trained in the appropriate courses. Pupils shall receive this instruction at least once in junior high or middle school and at least once in high school.

There is a long list of requirements of what must be included in the instruction. Some changes may be new to junior high and middle schools, including the requirement to provide accurate information about the effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods.

The text of AB 329 is available at the California Legislative Information website.
