Grades 9-12
HIV & Sex Education Module


The Healthy & Responsible Relationships grades 9-12 module contains 22 lessons covering HIV, other STI and pregnancy prevention, which focuses on abstinence as the safest and healthiest choice for school-aged youth and teaches prevention strategies for students when they eventually become sexually active.

HIV_Circle-icon-transparent.pngRelationships are central to an individual’s life. The quality of relationships affects each person’s behaviors, health, enjoyment of life, and likelihood of success. Therefore, healthy relationships are a foundational theme for positive sexual behavior taught throughout this curriculum module. The abstinence-based curriculum provides three options for implementation which local school districts can choose from to meet student needs and health education requirements:

  • abstinence-only
  • abstinence-based with condoms as disease risk reduction, but without other forms of contraception; or
  • abstinence-based with contraception, including condoms.
