    There have been no additions to the FLE curriculum for 2017-18. Grade level curriculum documents will be available in school libraries and at the parent preview. New this year, opt-out forms will be shared electronically with parents. Parents only need to respond if they DO NOT want their child to participate in the FLE instructional unit. SOLs by grade level (on the opt-out links) can be found on the FLE web page: https://www.lcps.org/Domain/23. If you decide to opt your child out, we encourage parents to print the forms at home and return them to their elementary classroom teacher or secondary Health and PE teacher.

    The FLE Parent Preview will take place the week of August 28 to September 1, 2017 in the LCPS Admin Building. Space is limited on Wednesday due to room size, so we encourage parents to visit on the other days, if convenient.

    Overview
     
    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 curriculum is designed to:
    1. Emphasize the importance of family
    2. Stress the need for individuals to make decisions appropriate to values established within their families;
    3. Assist students of all ages in accepting the responsibilities for and consequences of their behavior;
    4. Encourage child-parent discussion in order to foster mutual support between the home and the school; and
    5. Stress the value of life and the multiplicity of opportunities available to young people.
    Although the Family Life Education curriculum is compatible with existing curricula and serves to enrich the educational experiences of the students in the Loudoun County Public Schools, some objectives in the Family Life Education curriculum may be considered sensitive by some parents.  Therefore, parents may choose to opt their child out of any part or all of the program.
