The board of Loudoun County Public Schools on Tuesday approved new standards for controversial and sensitive curriculum materials.

Guideline 5420 defines controversial issues as those involving “significant academic, social, political, or ideological matters” about which students may have opposing viewpoints and perspectives. Sensitive topics are defined in the curriculum as “resolved historical facts” that can lead to sensitive conversations that need to be addressed in a “safe learning environment” for students.
