The Responsible Education for Adolescent and Children’s Health (REACH) Act requires comprehensive, inclusive, and age-appropriate personal health and safety education to be taught in public schools in grades K-12

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – At a press conference, on Wednesday, a group of advocates announce their support for the Responsible Education for Adolescent and Children’s Health (REACH) Act which mandates comprehensive, inclusive and age-appropriate personal health and safety education for K-12 public schools in Illinois. Co-sponsors of the bill are Senator Ram Villivalam (D-8) and Rep. Kathleen Willis (D-77). If passed, the REACH Act will be phased in, allowing schools adequate time and resources to implement quality programs. School districts will maintain control by selecting the curriculum and number of minutes for teaching. Parents will also retain the right to remove their child from sex education classes.
