A Massachusetts school district will be contacting parents in the next two weeks to detail a new program allowing students ages 12 and older to have access to condoms.
The Springfield Republican reports that officials with Springfield’s School Department will emphasize that parents and guardians have the right to opt out if they do not want their children to get condoms.
The access to condoms by school nurses is part of a “comprehensive reproductive health policy” that was approved in a 4-to-3 vote by the School Committee in April. The intent is to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted illnesses.
Letters and opt-out forms will be mailed before school starts, targeting families of middle- and high-school students ages 12 and older.
Parents also will be contacted by phone.
