Town Hall on LAUSD’s Sex Ed Curriculum
February 29, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Saturday, February 29th, 2020 @ 4-6 PM @ New Horizon’s Sam’s Café Banquet Hall
Purpose: The purpose of the Town Hall on LAUSD’s Sex Ed Curriculum and Parental Rights, K-12, is to promote transparency, communicate information about curricula and parental rights, and to allow community members to ask questions, so that parents may make an informed decision about the education of their children.
Collaboration with other NCs: The Ad Hoc Committee has reached out to several neighboring NCs in order to make this town hall a collaborative effort in the SF Valley. It is the goal of the Ad Hoc Committee to work alongside other Neighborhood Councils so together we can assist our communities in accessing information about Sex Ed programs and help our community reach a consensus on these challenging issues. Expenses will be shared by the NCs, with some paying for the venue, refreshments, outreach and other expenses. A motion of support has already been unanimously approved by Northridge West, Granada Hills North, North Hills West, Arleta, and Porter Ranch NC; and the motion is on the agenda for upcoming meetings at several other NCs.
Program Logistics: The Town Hall will be a 2- Hour public information event. A panel of speakers will be invited to present LAUSD’s Curriculum on Sex Ed, CA State legal requirements for Sex Ed, and information about parental rights. Each speaker will receive an allotted time to present their information, followed by vetted questions from the community, previewed and guided by a moderator, and followed by open public comment and questions.
