LISD Hosts Parent Workshops on Human Sexuality Curriculum and Presentations
Posted on 10/10/2016

Leander ISD will be hosting several informational workshops that cover the Human Sexuality Curriculum presented by Austin LifeGuard (ALG), an independent organization that provides abstinence-based curriculum presentations to students in grades 7-9 as part of the health curriculum.
