I know that Shen teaches the progressive new gender identity topic in high school. What grade level is it first introduced to children? Is it taught in elementary or middle school? Does Shen notify parents prior to these lessons?

A.  In accordance with state education department mandates gender identity is covered in health education classes beginning in eighth grade and then again at the high school level. There is a health education website (https://www.shenet.org/academics/health-education-department/) that offers information as to what is being taught. In addition, health education teachers do notify parents of the timeframe when this is being covered.
