This online manual is designed to support educators in teaching sexual health to students in grades 9-12. SEXed contains evidence-based lesson plans, activities, references and links to community resources in Durham Region.

The manual includes information that will assist in implementing the 2015 Ontario Curriculum for Health & Physical Education.

In addition to the manual, a SEXed teaching kit can be signed out. The teaching kit contains samples of various contraceptive methods, barrier methods to prevent against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and teaching aids (penis and vagina models) to assist the education of students/youth. To request a SEXed teaching kit, please complete the resource order form or contact one of our sexual health clinics.
