Where is FLASH being used?
FLASH is a popular, high quality sex education program, developed by Public Health – Seattle & King County. The FLASH curriculum is a public health intervention developed for schools. FLASH is used in every region of the country, in a wide variety of communities – urban, suburban and rural. Since 2015, purchases have been made in 44 states.
Public Health – Seattle & King County does not have a mechanism for tracking locations where FLASH has been purchased or downloaded. Individuals are not asked to register their use of FLASH, and as such we cannot provide reliable data about exactly who is using FLASH across the United States or internationally, or which lessons districts are choosing to implement. The best way to find out what sexual health education curriculum is being used by your local school district is to be in touch with them directly.
