Background

These curricula were originally reviewed in 2016. Since the review reports were published, nearly all of the publishers and authors have made substantial revisions. Please reach out to publishers and authors directly for the most current information. These reviews can be used as a guide to understand alignment with California Healthy Youth Act, but local education agencies should review materials for compliance, current relevance, medical accuracy, and community fit.

Process for Curricula Review 2020

The California Healthy Kids Resource Center (CHKRC), in conjunction with the Adolescent Sexual Health Work Group (ASHWG) is embarking on a 2020 Curriculum Review for compliance with the California Healthy Youth Act (CHYA) of 2016. For curriculum authors and publishers seeking a review of their curricula for compliance with the California Healthy Youth Act (CHYA), please follow the process (described below).

(Updated 7.17.20)

Step 1:

  • Publishers and authors use the Compliance Assessment Tool (CAT) for CHYA as a self-review process, carefully indicating the lesson number/title, page(s) number and line numbers where their curriculum meets the criteria outlined by California Healthy Youth Act.

Step 2:

  • Please submit the completed Compliance Assessment Tool (CAT) for CHYA form for each of the curricula you wish to be reviewed to nhana@sjcoe.net at the California Healthy Kids Resource Center.
    • For example, you will need to submit one CHYA CAT for a middle school curriculum and one for a high school curriculum. Also, submit the curricula to be reviewed (hard copy) or a way to access the curricula online.
    • Deadline to submit is: Wednesday, July 29, 2020.
    • If more time is required, please contact Nora Hana at 209-468-9089 (Office) or (nhana@sjcoe.net)
  • Please also submit a copy of the curricula (or access online) where the reviewers can access the curricula to verify compliance with the submitted CHYA CAT.
  • Curricula can be shipped to:
           California Healthy Kids Resource Center
           2707 Transworld Drive
           Stockton, CA  95206
           Or emailed to nhana@sjcoe.net at the California Healthy Kids Resource Center

Please Note: There will be no re-review of these curricula. Future curricula reviews will be dependent upon any legislative change to the California Healthy Youth Act and/or substantive new developments in the field of comprehensive sexual health education.

Step 3:

  • Once the review is complete, the California Healthy Kids Resource Center will contact the publisher.
  • The curricula review will be posted to the California Healthy Kids (CHKRC) website as well as the ASHWG Website.
