H 275 would require every city, town, regional/vocational school district implementing or maintaining curriculum, or a school sanctioned program or activity, which primarily involves human sexual education, human sexuality issues, or sexual orientation issues to adopt a written policy ensuring parental or legal guardian notification.

Such courses would only be allowed to be offered in clearly identified non-mandatory elective courses in which parents or guardians may choose to enroll their children through written notification to the school.

Instructional materials for such courses would need to be made available to parents, guardians, educators, school administrators, and others for inspection and review.
