Minnesota Sexuality Education Resource Review Panel (MSERRP)

The mission of the Minnesota Sexuality Education Resource Review Panel (MSERRP) is to review and recommend sexuality education and HIV prevention curricula and resources for use in schools and communities. The panel consists of 40 members with expertise in sexuality education and HIV prevention, who represent community-based and statewide organizations, including teachers, public health professionals, health educators, youth workers, and religious leaders.

Panel members adhere to the mission of the panel and support the following definition of comprehensive sexuality education.

The Review Process

Panel members convene on a quarterly basis. Panelists receive materials to review in advance of each meeting. Meetings include small and large group discussions that allow panel members to share their specific comments and gain a broad overview of the resources under review. Following the discussions, each panelist completes a written assessment of the resource using a 7-9 point criteria scale. MOAPPP serves as the coordinating agency for MSERRP. MOAPPP's role includes: identifying and recruiting panel members; providing orientation training sessions; planning agendas for meetings; selecting materials for review; organizing mailings and site arrangements; staffing the meetings; compiling the completed assessment forms; writing review summaries; and disseminating the completed summaries.
