Colorado changed its laws around sex ed. Here’s what you need to know.

posted by:

Colorado law will soon require students who receive sexual education to learn about consent in school.

 But the road to passing that bill was bumpy. The final legislation was heavily amended and passed in the last two days of the legislative session. The bill is still awaiting the governor’s signature.

So, the burning questions: 

So, what is changing?

What changed with regards to LGBTQ students?

Will kindergarten students be learning about sexual education?

What about charter schools?

Can parents opt out?

In response to parent questions, Chalkbeat prepared an explainer of how sexual education works in Colorado’s public schools, and what exactly was changed through this year’s bill.
