Monitor and Review Sex Education Implementation
- There is a systematic approach to ensuring sex education is being implemented and that the sex education curriculum is a strong fit for students’ needs
Once a sex education program is in place, efforts to monitor implementation can provide accountability and ensure program continuity and quality. Monitoring could take a variety of forms including a simple worksheet teachers complete and submit to document sex education lessons taught; regular assessments of student learning related to the standards/objectives; teacher or principal evaluations; and/or structured department meetings of sex education teachers to facilitate sharing lesson plans, challenges, strategies, etc. The level of monitoring will depend on the context, capacity, and compliance measures of each site.
