Ventura County Grand Jury Weighs In On Sex Education Programs In County's Charter Schools

A new Grand Jury report says that Ventura County’s charter schools aren’t doing a good job of informing parents about their options when it comes to state required sex education.

A state law requires schools to inform parent about opt out options.  The Ventura County Grand Jury found that the ten impacted charter schools in the county provide some information, but none of them fully meet what’s required.

The required opt out options for parents include providing the students with alternative curriculum.  

But, the Grand Jury notes that as of the writing of its report, five of the ten schools were in the process of adopting guidelines to meet the state mandated requirements.
