Mandating high

Sex education, human reproduction education and human sexuality education curriculum and materials must be approved by the school board and available for parents to review.

This book focuses on three court rulings affecting mandatory high-school community service.

It examines the rationale, functioning, and outcomes of high-school community-service programs and addresses the significant legal aspects of community service.

It also analyzes court opinions and related legislation on community service and points out some possible future changes in these laws.

The text is divided into eight chapters and outlines the four purposes of community service, such as the intellectual and academic benefits that accrue to students.

It then turns to three mandatory programs that were challenged on the grounds that they violated constitutional prohibitions against involuntary servitude, infringed on freedom of speech, and limited personal liberty.

The book looks at the common elements of the challenged programs and the courts' review of the questions surrounding the cases.

In 2011, approximately 24 percent of new HIV diagnoses were young people age 13 to 24.

HB 156 Requires local school boards to adopt policies to promote the involvement of parents in the school district’s education program, in consultation with parents, teachers and school administrators.

Human papillomavirus is the most common STI among teens; some estimates find that up to 35 percent of teens ages 14 to 19 have HPV.

Girls age 15 to 19 have the highest rates of Gonorrhea and the second highest rate of Chlamydia of any age group.

It discusses how the school districts prevailed in the court cases, outlines the court-sanctioned legitimacy of connecting traditional in-class academic course content with experiential out-of-class service, and presents the argument that mandatory community service is beneficial to participating students.
