Education

New sex ed standards need more scrutiny, says Flossmoor school board 

Flossmoor School District 161 board members voted to not yet adopt the National Sex Education Standards within its curricula. At their Aug. 8 meeting, board members indicated they want to first review the district’s current procedures and materials related to sex education before moving forward with the standards.

Director of Curriculum and Instruction Amabel Crawford presented to the board at its July 18 meeting an option to adopt the NSES. That move would require the district to introduce new material and modify existing programs as necessary to align with the national standards.
