S.B. 136 introduced by Democrat Kathleen Riebe was numbered today.
This bill would do the following:
1. Retain parental right to review and approve if child attends or not. Which, we all know that teens never talk to one another, so if your child does not attend, you can be SURE that another child will provide all the details anyways.
110 (ii) require a student's parent to be notified in advance and have an opportunity to
111 review the information for which parental consent is required
2. Repeal provision prohibiting the use of contraceptives
65 (iii) prohibit instruction in:
68 [(C) the advocacy or encouragement of the use of contraceptive methods or devices;
70 (iv) [except as provided in Subsection (2)(d),] allow instruction to include information
71 about contraceptive methods or devices that stresses effectiveness, limitations, risks, and
72 information on state law applicable to minors obtaining contraceptive methods or devices.
3. Requirement to report participation in the training
207 (6) An LEA shall annually report to the state board, for each grade in which the LEA
208 provides sex education instruction, the percentage of students in the grade that provide the
209 written consent described in Subsection (2).
