State Funded Comprehensive Health Education

Comprehensive Health Education Grants

The "Colorado Comprehensive Health Education Act of 1990" encourages every school district to provide a pre K-12th grade planned, sequential health education program. Parental and community involvement in the program is stressed. Parents and guardians have the right to exempt from any or all of the health education program. Local health advisory councils are encouraged and should be representative of the norms and values of the community.


  • A New Request for Proposals will be released November 2018.

Other information:


The State Board of Education adopted Comprehensive Health Education and Physical Education Standards in December, 2009.
