Dear Parents and Guardians:

In 2020 the NJ State Board of Education adopted new standards for sex education in the public schools that are set to take effect in this coming Fall semester (Fall of 2022). These new standards outline extensive instruction on gender expressions, gender identity and sexual orientation and various sexual activities at all grade levels.

You have a right to protect your children from explicit human sexuality materials and instruction in public schools. Below is a link to a Parental Non-Consent Form that you can fill out for each of your children and present to the principal or other administrator at your school. You should fill out two copies for each child, one for the school to keep in your child’s file, and one for you to keep for your records.

The purpose of this form is to put the school on notice regarding what is/is not acceptable for your child with regard to the issues described in the form.
