The Coalition for LGBTQ+ Students wants you to tell us what the "SAFE & INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENTS FOR LGBTQ+ STUDENTS" policy would mean to YOU!
The AACPS Board of Education is considering the adoption of official policies pertaining to LGBTQ+ students ("SAFE AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENTS FOR LGBTQ+ STUDENTS" >> Draft policy link included at bottom of form). The aim of these policies is to ensure our schools are safer, more inclusive, and have better resources to meet the needs of all LGBTQ+ students. Current considerations include meaningful professional development and training for teachers and staff at all schools, the establishment of LGBTQ+ inclusive clubs/organizations to support students, as well as the application and extension of the current trans-inclusive guidelines to all LGBTQ+ students.

Our coalition has decided to ask the Anne Arundel community what this proposed policy change would mean to them personally--and you can let us know using a video, audio, visual, or written message through this google form! We plan on taking the responses and assembling them into a compelling message which we intend to share with key stakeholders to make our community support KNOWN during this pivotal 30-day public commentary period in advance of the upcoming board vote.  Accordingly, we respectfully request any current or former AACPS LGBTQ+ student, family member, ally, or employee use this google form to share with us what these proposed policy changes would mean to them.

*Remember that submitting a piece of media here IS NOT THE SAME as officially providing testimony directly to the AACPS Board of Education for one of their reader meetings.
