Students in the Rochester City School District will be able to get free condoms from school nurses starting Monday.

It's a controversial policy approved by the Board of Education early last year. Students in 9th through 12th grader will be eligible.

In order to get the condoms they must get counseling about abstinence, safe sex, STDs and complete a course on AIDS education.

The district wants to help prevent the spread of disease and prevent teen pregnancy. Parents can sign a letter that will prevent their son or daughter from being able to get condoms.
