Description

The Sexuality Education Summit: Supporting our Students' Healthy Development with Comprehensive Sexuality Education PreK-12

Sexuality is fundamental to who we are as human beings and integral to every child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development from the moment of birth. However, even in our “post modern” 21st Century era, the great majority of U.S. schools remain 3 - 7 years behind in teaching even basic knowledge about human anatomy and reproduction. As educators we can turn the tide and truly provide the comprehensive sexuality education that our students need and deserve.

The two-day Sexuality Education Summit will provide a space of support, learning, and community where educators and administrators can immerse themselves in the foundational principles that underpin comprehensive PreK-12 human sexuality education. Within that framework, participants will learn how to:

  • Connect key principles to their school’s mission statement;

  • Advocate for a pedagogically and developmentally sound curriculum that meets real student need;

  • Hear relevant experiences from current and former Upper School students;

  • Envision planned, sequenced programming throughout the divisions ;

  • Utilize effective teaching skills;

  • Integrate current topics in the news that connect to sexuality and gender; and

  • Establish authentic partnerships with families around raising sexually healthy children and adolescents.

Led by Sarah Huss, Director of Human Development and Parent Education at Campbell Hall, and Dana Gonzalez, former Director of Diversity & Inclusivity at Viewpoint School and current Assistant Upper School Director at Brentwood School, the Summit will feature presentations by nationally recognized Human Development educators and thought leaders including, Deborah Roffman, author of Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Child’s Go-to Person About Sex; Mike Riera, Head of Brentwood School and one of the country’s foremost authorities on understanding children and teenagers; and Charis Denison, educator and consultant on Human Development, ethics, and community involvement.

Who should attend:

All PreK - 12 Administrators, Teachers, Counselors, and Nurses. Lower/elementary school personnel are especially encouraged to attend.
