Health Resources & Guest Speakers
Choosing Health Resources
Along with the resources on this website, there are many other sexual health education resources for teachers. It’s important to choose resources that are comprehensive, evidence‑based and use instructional methods proven to influence positive behavioural change. One tool teachers and school administrators can use to guide which resources to use is the Guide for Choosing School Health Resources. This resource help schools choose high quality health and wellness resources that will meet their identified needs.
Check with your school district first to see if there are policies, guidelines, regulations and/or procedures when using guest speakers.
Alberta Health Services does provide classroom education in some zones. To learn what’s offered in your area, go to Services by Zone.
Please note that Alberta Health Services doesn’t keep a list of approved guest speakers for schools. Alberta Health Services defers to each school board/jurisdiction to choose their guest speakers.
