The Lompoc Unified School District will hold 10 public forums throughout the month of October to gather more input from parents regarding a new sexual education program.

The program is mandated by the California Healthy Youth Act, which took effect in 2016. Lessons touch on subjects including birth control, consent, HIV prevention, and sexual identity and orientation.

The district board voted earlier this week to put the program on hold, at least for some students.

The public input forums will be held at the following times:
     Monday October 1, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Education Center
     Saturday, October 6, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Education Center
     Monday, October 8, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Cabrillo High School
     Wednesday, October 10, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Cabrillo High School
     Thursday, October 11, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Lompoc Valley Middle School
     Tuesday, October 16, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Lompoc Valley Middle School
     Thursday, October 18, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Vandenberg Middle School
     Friday, October 19, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Vandenberg Middle School
     Monday, October 22, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Lompoc High School
     Tuesday, October 23, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. At Lompoc High School.

"LUSD wants to partner with our community for a better education for our students today and well into the future. Obtaining feedback and dialoging is a valuable way for me and LUSD to grow and advance. We look forward to a great process and satisfying result," said Superintendent of Schools Trevor McDonald.
