Family Life Education
The Powhatan County School Board provides Family Life Education (FLE) based on the FLE Standards of Learning (SOL) and curriculum guidelines developed by the Board of Education and available on the VDOE website.
The FLE curriculum offered in any school incorporates age-appropriate elements of effective and evidence-based programs on the importance of the personal privacy and personal boundaries of other individuals and tools for students to use to ensure that they respect the personal privacy and personal boundaries of other individuals.
Parents and guardians have the right to review the family life education program offered by their school division, including written and audio-visual educational materials used in the program. Parents and guardians also have the right to opt-out their child from all or part of family life education instruction.
Each spring, the Health and Physical Education department in grades 5-10 provides several lessons on family life. Parents will be notified of the timing of the lessons as well as the opportunity to opt-out their child from all or part of the family life instruction.
