According to statute 1003.42 (3). Any student whose parent makes written request to the school principal shall be exempted from the teaching of reproductive health or any disease, including HIV/AIDS, its symptoms, development, and treatment. A student so exempted may not be penalized by reason of that exemption.

Each school district shall, on the district’s website homepage, notify parents of this right and the process to request an exemption.
