Senate Bill 9 (SB 9)
Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) of the 87th Texas Legislative Session requires school districts to offer curriculum to students in the prevention of child abuse (elementary & secondary), family violence (elementary & secondary), dating violence (secondary), and sex trafficking (secondary). Parents/caregivers must provide consent before their child can receive instruction in the specified topics. Without opt-in consent, students will be unable to participate in the lesson(s).
With guidance from the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC), Northwest ISD has approved the curriculum that will be used for the different grade levels. The curriculum is provided by and facilitated through a community partner, Alliance for Children: A Children’s Advocacy Center. Parent/caregivers may preview the curriculum as indicated below.
