Students to get free condoms at high schools in Kansas city

Posted 8:24 a.m. Monday

— Students at two high schools in Lawrence, Kansas, are being given access to free condoms at their school's health offices.

The Lawrence Journal-World ( ) reports that that the dispensers could become available as early as this week at Lawrence High School and Free State High School.

Students will be able to get the condoms without parental permission as part of a partnership between the school district and the county health department.

The dispensers will be installed in the bathrooms of each school's health office, and students also will be taught how to safely and effectively use the condoms with this fall's sexuality education curriculum.
