The instruction shall be designed to increase discussion and awareness that consent is required before physical contact or sexual activity, as well as the social, emotional, and relational impact surrounding sexuality, the right to say no to unwanted physical contact or sexual activity, and the virtues of respecting the right of others to say no. The Commissioner of Education shall provide school districts with age-appropriate sample learning activities and resources designed to implement this requirement.
