During the 87th Texas Legislation, a new bill (Texas House Bill 1525) was adopted that requires parents or legal guardians to opt-in their students to participate in the Human Sexuality curriculum.  Decatur ISD 6-12 grade parents MUST turn in the district signed form stating their child CAN participate in these lessons.  

In Decatur ISD, students in Grades  6-12 are taught Human Sexuality Curriculum through presentations by 180 degrees, a non-profit organization.
