This year, the state legislature approved House Bill 162, which requires school districts to provide free period products for students in all school facilities. Accordingly, Provo City School District will place free period products in every female and family bathroom in our schools. Within the coming days, donated period product dispensers will be installed at each school, providing high-quality, organic, dignified products for our students.
Additionally, H.B. 162 requires that schools inform students about the availability of the products being provided. Parents or guardians are responsible for discussing the need for and proper use of period products with their children and these topics will not be addressed by the schools. The state has provided communication and information materials to share with parents and students. As the school year approaches, you may see this communication coming from your child’s school. All the materials are also provided below.
