Family Life Education

Fairfax County Public Schools' (FCPS) Family Life Education (FLE) curriculum is taught in grades K-12. The elementary FLE program is taught by the regular classroom teacher.

Descriptions of grade level Family Life Education lessons are available for review at any time.  These lessons will routinely be included in classroom lessons for all students unless the parent/guardian specifically requests that the child be excluded.  To have a child excluded from any or all lessons, the parent/guardian must complete an “opt out” form.

Alternative instruction in another setting will be provided for students who are “opted out.”
