Setting up FLASH in your school district
Training for the FLASH curriculum is recommended but not required. FLASH is designed to be teacher-friendly, including ample scripting so that schools can implement when they are ready. FLASH trainings will increase teachers' competence and confidence in delivering these lessons and answering student questions, and teachers overwhelmingly find the training leaves them better prepared.
FLASH trainings of educators are skill based and interactive. Trainings build skills in answering difficult student questions, including questions about values, best practices in the field of sexual health education, the effective use of key concepts, and the FLASH approach to a variety of topics. Trainings can easily accommodate teachers who are new to sexual health education as well as experienced teachers. For more information about scheduling a training, please email FLASH@kingcounty.gov.
In addition to FLASH trainings, professionals seeking other training on sexual health education topics can visit Answer's Resources for Professionals page, where they can register for webinars and online workshops. Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest also offers an online course on Sexuality Education.
