TRAINING DESCRIPTIONS:

KNOW Curriculum Training

KNOW is the model HIV/AIDS Prevention Curriculum developed by OSPI at the direction of the legislature to support schools in providing required HIV/AIDS prevention education to students in grades 5-12.

This training is designed to support delivery of KNOW for grades 5-8, though it is also helpful for those providing high school level HIV prevention instruction.

KNOW is available for free download on the OSPI website.


FLASH Training

FLASH (Family Life and Sexual Health) is a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum developed by Public Health Seattle - King County. In addition to KNOW, it is the most widely used sexual health curriculum in WA.

This training is a highly interactive and research-based learning process that supports educators with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully use the FLASH program in the classroom. Training sessions may focus on delivery of elementary, secondary or special education versions of FLASH. Educators who successfully complete the FLASH educator learning process walk away with knowledge and skills on:

  • The foundations of sexual health and HIV instruction
  • How to answer sensitive student questions
  • Key concepts to use in teaching the FLASH curriculum
  • Best practices in methodology for teaching key sexuality education topics, such as abstinence, puberty, sexual violence prevention, LGBT issues, and more


Exemplary Sexual Health Education (ESHE) Academy

ESHE is a highly interactive training that includes skill development for answering difficult questions and using key concepts as the basis for instruction, and information about Washington state laws and policies, and new student learning standards and outcomes for K-12 health education.

ESHE is an approach to providing sexual health education that:

  • Is medically accurate and consistent with scientific evidence.
  • Is tailored to students’ needs and the contexts and educational practices of communities.
  • Uses effective classroom instructional methods.
  • Allows students to develop and demonstrate developmentally appropriate sexual health-related knowledge, attitudes, skills, and practices.

This two-day training provides information and skills for classroom educators to support implementation of the Healthy Youth Act and align with best practices in sexual health education.


Welcoming Schools

Welcoming Schools is a comprehensive approach offering a tool kit to create welcoming schools that address family diversity, avoiding and eliminating gender role stereotyping, and ending bullying. Each one-day training is designed to meet the needs of pre-school and elementary-level educators, school staff, and child serving agencies. It is STRONGLY suggested that schools bring teams to these sessions, if at all possible.
