Family Life Education
The Prince William County Family Life Education curriculum includes a set of comprehensive, sequential, abstinence-based, and age appropriate objectives that embrace concepts of honesty; truthfulness; diligence; racial harmony; loving sexual relationships and respect for parents, teachers, and other duly constituted authorities. While much attention seems to be focused on issues of sexuality, the Family Life Education curriculum is broader-based, designed to assist students in dealing with issues that confront them daily. Family Life Education concepts are made relevant to students because they are taught by classroom teachers, oftentimes with the assistance of the school guidance counselor or school nurse.

The primary goal of the Family Life Education program is to educate students about making informed choices based on preliminary information they receive in the program, coupled with information from their parents and other approved sources. Every effort is made to avoid the disenfranchisement of students.

Due to the sensitive nature of some of the topics in the Family Life Education program, Prince William County Public Schools institutes an opt-out process, where parents may elect to remove their children from instruction on any or all of the objectives in the program.

In June 2004 the Prince William County School Board approved an updated version of the Family Life Education curriculum aligned with the revised state guidelines. The Prince William Family Life Education curriculum documents can be located on this page.
