The Leander Independent School District began teaching their chosen human sexuality curriculum, Austin LifeGuard (ALG), in October. LISD Communications Coordinator Matt Mitchell said the district has used the same program for at least 13 years. Review of the human sexuality curriculum occurs every three years through the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC), for grades 7, 8 and 9. “SHAC looks at several different curriculums noting the requirements from the state and determines which curriculum to recommend for use in LISD,” Mitchell said. In 2018, the LISD SHAC reviewed the ALG, Big Decisions and Scott and White curriculums. Ultimately, the subcommittee recommended that LISD continue their partnership with ALG, at a cost of $35,000. The LISD School Board at the time, approved the recommendation.
