Welcome to Sexuality Health And Responsibility Education (S.H.A.R.E.)

  • Mission:

    The Washoe County School District's Sexuality, Health And Responsibility Education (S.H.A.R.E.) program provides students with a factual, comprehensive, abstinence-based instructional program delivered by specially trained teachers and counselors addressing HIV/AIDS awareness, reproductive system, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) and sexual responsibility. 

    Major Function:

    The S.H.A.R.E. program assists students in making informed choices and avoid behaviors that put them at risk. 

    The Course of Study is provided as a resource for teachers, parents and staff. Because of the strong social pressures children face, we know how important it is to reinforce the concepts that parents hope their child will adopt in his/her life. 

    Parent Preview:

    To preview your child's S.H.A.R.E. program, the Washoe County School District invites you to attend a Parent Night.  Each session will cover all materials for the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th grade programs.

    • District wide Parent Preview Nights for MS and HS will be offered by region each fall.
    • Elementary counselors will independently host Parent Preview Nights for elementary schools.

    Please contact your school counselor for information related to when your parent preview night will be held and when S.H.A.R.E. is scheduled at your child’s school.
