Parents Have Ultimate Say

I support these critically important model policies in order to protect children from inappropriate content at school and to respect parents' right to determine whether their children are exposed to this content.

Make sure this document stipulates specific actions every school must take to ensure parents are aware of sexually-explicit material being offered to their children. 

Many schools may try to find ways around what they consider to be mere guidance.
