The guidelines in Newport Beach for sexuality and sexual health education are the same as in the rest of California. The state legislature mandates that all curriculum include comprehensive instruction on sexuality and sexual health that includes medically accurate and age-appropriate material for students between the grades of 7 and 12. A new bill, known as Bill SB-695, also mandates curriculum to include a focus on the dangers of sexual violence, relationship safety and consent. This mandate is a more progressive approach to sexual health education in the public school system than previous mandated curriculum in California.

By educating at a young age the risks of sexual activity, future generations can be more prepared for sexual activity and its possible consequences.
