School Safety & Violence Prevention for LGBT Students: Legal Q&A Guides for School Administrators
Image

The California Safe Schools Coalition developed two Question and Answer guides for school district officials and administrators regarding: (1) the law that protects students from harassment and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender and (2) the statutes regarding parental permission and notification for education on certain topics related to tolerance and diversity. These guides are being sent to every county and district superintendent in California along with a letter from Senator Sheila Kuehl, the author of the California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000 (AB 537), which protects students from harassment and discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity.

These guides can be used by GSAs and other local organizers or advocates to help understand and explain school districts' responsibilities in implementing the California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000 and educating students about preventing harassment and discrimination.
