Policies that Ensure Safe and Supportive Schools for LGBTQ+ and All Students
For over 20 years, Equality California has worked to transform school systems in California to be safer and more supportive of LGBTQ+ and all students through state policy change. Mindful of the long-standing inequities in treatment of LGBTQ+ students and the violence, discrimination, and poor mental health and life outcomes that result from them, Equality Californiaís Safe and Supportive Schools program ensures that critical protections and best practices that improve studentsí lives are being implemented at the district level. By surveying unified school districts using an instrument developed by educational leaders and approved by the California Department of Education, we gather critical information on policy implementation and help superintendents chart a course toward improvement. In this presentation, we will review the Safe and Supportive Schools survey and the laws and best practices that comprise it and discuss how districts can use the survey to create positive, systemic change.
