The Youth Equity & Sexuality A-Team, in collaboration with MNPS, is seeking community partners to submit proposals for in-school presentations to support sexual health education and entries for a Family Life & Sexuality Education Resource Guide.
In 2019, Metro Nashville Public Schools was awarded federal grant funding through the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to implement and monitor: (1) the delivery of high quality, developmentally-appropriate sexual health education; (2) connections to sexual health services and resources for young people; and (3) increased intentionality of safe and supportive environments for LGBTQIA and all students.
This project will initially launch in identified priority schools, expanding to all middle and high schools by the end of the project period in 2023. The ASR & Healthy Starts A-Team seeks to partner with a minimum of 15 community partners to provide (1) skills-based classroom instruction to students (2) a resource guide on family life and sexual health education.
SUBMITTING RESOURCE ENTRIES
Community partners that provide health and wellness services may submit their information for review and inclusion in the 2019 Family Life & Sexuality Education Resource Guide. The resource guide will be shared for use with the MNPS Collaborative Referral System.
SUBMITTING CLASSROOM TRAININGS
Community partners can respond to the ITP to submit trainings/presentations that support health/sexual health education in safe and supportive environments. All classroom trainings and programs are required to meet the following MNPS and State policies and procedures:
