    2020-2021 School Year

  • For the 2020-21 school year, Family Life Education (FLE) in LCPS has adjusted the lessons to focus only on non-sensitive Standards of Learning (SOL). These adjusted lessons for the 2020-2021 school year will emphasize non-sensitive FLE SOL’s that are rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL), the LCPS Profile of a Graduate and other important concepts as bulleted in sections below.

    Although the FLE curriculum is compatible with existing curricula and serves to enrich the educational experiences of the students in the Loudoun County Public Schools, certain objectives in this year's Family Life Education curriculum may still be considered sensitive by some parents / guardians. To assist parents / guardians in making informed decisions about whether to optout their child from FLE instruction, the information provided on this webpage is offered to help facilitate this process.

  • What is the purpose of the Family Life Education Program in Loudoun County Public Schools?

    In response to the requirements of Section 22.1-207.1 of the Code of Virginia, Loudoun County Public Schools has implemented a comprehensive, sequential, abstinence-based, age-appropriate Family Life Education curriculum grades 4-10.

    The Loudoun County Family Life Education (FLE) curriculum is designed to:

    • Emphasize the importance of family
    • Stress the need for individuals to make decisions appropriate to values established within their families
    • Assist students of all ages in accepting the responsibilities for and consequences of their behavior
    • Encourage child-parent discussion to foster mutual support between the home and the school
    • Stress the value of life and the multiplicity of opportunities available to young people.

  • Annual Parent / Guardian Preview of Family Life Education – 100% Virtual Drop-in this year.

    The annual Parent / Guardian Preview of Family Life Education (FLE) materials will be 100% virtual for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents / Guardians can view the instructional tools posted in ParentVue under the “Additional Information” tab and by clicking the Family Life Education link.

    If parents / guardians have further questions after viewing the materials, the FLE specialists are hosting a grade level Virtual Drop-in on Wednesday, September 16th, Thursday, September 17th, and Monday, September 21st. You’re invited to attend, to ask questions, and to meet the instructors as noted in the following schedule.

  • When/how can I attend the Virtual Drop-in on Wed, Sept 16th, Thurs, Sept 17th, and Mon, Sept 21st?

    To participate in the Family Life Education Parent / Guardian Virtual Drop-in, it is suggested that attendees:

    • Review the Family Life Education instructional materials in ParentVue prior to attending
