Sexual Health Curricula and Training for Texas School Districts

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is offering sexual health curricula and training for school districts through a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) opportunity with the Abstinence Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program.

 This opportunity allows for school districts across the state of Texas to receive curricula, student workbooks and training in evidence based abstinence education, at no cost.

 The DSHS Abstinence Program has identified five curricula under the Memorandum of Understanding opportunity, of which school districts can select from. 

The curricula include:

  • Promoting Health Among Teens-Abstinence Version
  • Teen Outreach Program (TOP)
  • Making a Difference-Abstinence Version
  • Draw the Line
  • Heritage Keepers

For more information on the MOU process or for questions, please contact Crystal Starkey at crystal.starkey@dshs.state.tx.us.
