Summary:
Guidance and counseling and family life education programs. Continues the guidance counseling and family life education programs for grades K through 12 and vests sole authority in local school boards to determine the specific contents, methods, materials, and curricula to be used for the programs within their schools. School boards must continue to comply with the family life education program review requirements set forth in 22.1-207.2. In addition, all parents must be notified in writing that a description of the guidance counseling program is available in the school library for review during school office hours before and during the school year (consistent with the family life review requirements). Procedures for excusing children from components of the programs are established which provide that parents may opt out of all or any part of the family life education program, that parents must be informed that participation in academic guidance counseling programs and career education guidance counseling programs is required, that parents may opt out of all or part of group guidance counseling instruction that is not academic or career education guidance counseling, and that parents must opt in for individual or small-group structured counseling, except for an initial contact on an issue. Opt-out requests must be granted except for academic guidance counseling and career education guidance counseling. Other grade-level-appropriate instruction must be provided to the opted-out students. Parents may reverse opt-out decisions by written notification to the principal.
