Novato Unified Changes Policies to Make LGBTQQ Students More Safe

March 31, 2013 · 

In 2011 YLI’s Marin County Youth Commission (MCYC) released a report titled “Safe and Healthy School Environments for All”.

The report was based on the findings of a youth-led survey that studied personal and emotional safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) youth in Marin County public schools.

Using this report, MCYC youth partnered with Gay-Straight-Trans Alliance Clubs, Spectrum Center and other allies to successfully amend San Rafael and Novato School District policies to enhance safety to queer and questioning youth in the spring of 2013.
