In the Grandview School District at the middle and high school levels, sexual health education is typically a one week section of a semester-long health class. At the elementary level fifth graders are typically given a one to two-hour presentation on puberty and their changing bodies. Curriculum in the Grandview School District is vetted by the district’s Curriculum Council, made up of teachers and administrators. The council looks at different curriculums then makes a recommendation to the board.
