Chicago Public Schools will be offering free condoms to students, ages 10 and up, when classes commence again in the fall, Fox News reported. According to an incipient policy, which CPS Board of Education signed in December, schools must “maintain a condom availability program” for grades 5 and up to bulwark against “sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV infection, and unintended gravidity.”
The Chicago Department of Public Health will provide thousands of condoms to 600 CPS schools. Each elementary school will be allotted 250 condoms and high schools will receive 1,000, FOX 32 reported. “When you don’t have those protections and don’t make those resources available then lamentable stuff transpires to puerile people,” CPS medico Kenneth Fox told the Chicago Sun-Times, acknowledging that some people may be upset by the move. “You have ascended risks of sexually transmitted infections, of unintended pregnancies, and that’s very preventable stuff.”
CPS verbalized the incipient policy is “guided by anti-racist pedagogy” and “provides strategies to fortify all students that are inclusive of gender identity, gender expression.”
The district withal described its sex inculcation as “medically precise” and “age felicitous,” with the goal of edifying “consent and salubrious relationships, anatomy and physiology, puberty and adolescent sexual development, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation and identity, sexual health, and interpersonal violence,” according to the policy.
Students from Pre-K through 12th grade will be required to participate in sex inculcation edifications unless a parent or sentinel provides a “written remonstration.” Any edifier who leads the edification must first complete the District’s Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Instructor training and pass the post exam. All staff must withal consummate annual “Safe and Supportive Environments for LGBTQ+ Students training.”
In integration, schools are injuctively authorized to provide information about accessing “confidential reproductive and sexual health accommodations,” including abortion, transgender health accommodations, contraceptives, prenatal care, adoption, noetic healthcare, and HIV and STI screenings and treatments.
