  1. ensuring parental notification;
  2. directly identifying the specific instructional material and sexually explicit subjects; and
  3. permitting the parent of any student to review instructional material that includes sexually explicit content and provide, as an alternative, non-explicit instructional material and related academic activities to any students whose parent so requests.
