Montgomery public schools adhere to the outlines of Alabama state law. The state legislature has deemed that an emphasis on sexual abstinence as the only completely reliable method of avoiding pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Within the state of Alabama, students are instructed in parenting skills and the financial responsibilities associated with pregnancy, childbirth and child rearing.

The Center for Disease Control recommends screening at least once a year for syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea for all sexually active gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. Also, men who have sex with men and who have multiple or anonymous partners should be screened more frequently for STDs. The CDC suggests every 3 to 6 months.
