The New York City Board of Education is involved in efforts toward the promotion of condom use in schools. Public high schools were mandated to 1) assemble an HIV/AIDS team composed of the principal, assistant principal, teachers, parents, students, health resource staff, and other personnel to oversee the program; 2) teach a minimum of six HIV/AIDS lessons in each grade; 3) put up a "resource room" at the school with condoms and AIDS prevention materials; 4) staff the room not less than 10 periods a week and post the schedule of opening hours; 5) identify at least one male and one female "condom resource room volunteers"; and 6) assign HIV/AIDS information session for parents. Condom availability does not encourage students to become sexually active, but rather, is an inexpensive HIV/AIDS prevention method.
