TUCSON, Ariz. - The largest school district in Tucson has introduced a new curriculum that would include sex education, an issue that has raised much debate in the past year.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that the Tucson Unified School District governing board unanimously approved Tuesday the Family Life Curriculum.

Board members voted last September to hold the vote on the curriculum until multiple stipulations were met. District officials say a final draft of the curriculum was finished in April that emphasizes abstinence and places the topics of gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation at the high school level.
