Title: Creating and Sustaining Safe and Supportive Environments for LGBTQIAP+ Students
Focus: Relearning Gender, Historical Violence, and Practice

  • School will build up frameworks for an accountable learning community, utilizing both restorative justice and MTSS models.
  • Families will become familiar with transgender student policy & procedure and district resources and supports.
