Virginia Code 22.1-207.2 already provides parents with the rights SB656 proposes.

SB656 is a waste of taxpayer dollars.  Parents already have this right.

§ 22.1-207.2. Right of parents to review certain materials; summaries distributed.

Every parent, guardian or other person in the Commonwealth having control or charge of any child who is required by subsection A of § 22.1-254 to send such child to a public school shall have the right to review the complete family life curricula, including all supplemental materials used in any family life education program. A complete copy of all printed materials not subject to copyright protection and a description of all audio-visual materials shall be made available through any available parental portal and kept in the school library or office and made available for review to any parent or guardian during school office hours before and during the school year.
