Mississippi maintains one of the highest teen pregnancy rates and sexually transmitted infections rates in the nation. By law, each MS school district must have a Sexual Health Education policy. HB 999 requires school districts to select teachers to assist with the implementation of this law. By taking three designated sexual health educator courses, a participant can apply for a Sexual Health Educator Certificate.
