Health and Physical Education exemption process

Trillium Lakelands District School Board has developed a policy and procedure on the exemption process for the human development and sexual health curriculum. 

To support differing preferences and beliefs, families may choose to approach or teach topics related to human development and sexual health in a manner or at an age that differs from the curriculum. Families will receive a letter from the school at least 20 days prior to the instruction start date outlining the steps to take if they wish to exempt their child from all instruction related to human development and sexual health.
