KSHSAA Advisory Team provides input from students

Each year six juniors across the state of Kansas are selected to be a part of the KSHSAA Student Advisory Team. Last year, I was one of the selected students and I currently serve as one of the 2A representatives. As a member of the team, part of my job is to provide input to the KSHSAA Executive Board, Board of Directors and Association staff about issues affecting students. 

OPINION | Inadequate sexual education failing teenagers

The sex education at USD 329 is inadequate, and it doesn’t prepare teens for a sexually healthy future. 

Kansas schools are required to teach sexual health education as part of high school physical education curriculum. The curriculum is not required to be comprehensive, meaning that it would teach about abstinence as the best method for avoiding STDs and unintended pregnancy, but also teaches about evidence-based information, condoms and contraception to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and of infection with STDs, including HIV. Comprehensive sex ed also teaches interpersonal and communication skills and helps young people explore their own values, goals and options.
