A new state law is forcing the Fresno Unified School District to improve it's sex education classes.

The law requires all school districts to have a "comprehensive" sex education program in place for middle and high school students.

Fresno Unified dropped its program five years ago but officials said they're welcoming the new state requirement.

"A goal of course will be to address teen pregnancy, especially in our community and to address sexually transmitted diseases so it will cover that in the curriculum," said Rosario Sanchez, Associate Superintendent FUSD.

The Fresno Unified School Board will discuss how to move forward with the new sex ed law at its next meeting later this week.
