DO SUPPORT Policies to Protect Children from inappropriate sexual content

I absolutely SUPPORT the key model policies as described in this document to PROTECT children from inappropriate sexual content at school

It is critically FIRST a parent's right to determine whether their children are exposed to an sexual content proposed within the school curriculum.

Minimum standards MUST be expressly mandated (vs suggestions) so that potentially explicit sexual material by nature are correctly identified and presented to parents FIRST so they they make an informed decision for their children to participate or not.  This is not an arbitrary decision that educators/school administrators, those NOT ULTIMATELY OR LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE for the raising of the children, have any right to make unilaterally.
