November 30, 2022

Loudoun passed a policy, with a vote of 7-2, that helps prevent the sexualization of children. Under this new policy, teachers must notify parents that sexually explicit material will be used in a lesson plan with at least 30 days’ notice, so parents can opt their children out if they do not want their kids exposed to such material.
