Principals and other building leaders play an essential role in ensuring that all students feel safe and supported in the school setting.

This course will utilize much of the curriculum, research and training materials from GLSEN to help teach building leaders about the challenges LGBTQ students face in school and ways to create safer spaces for those students. We will also look at national statistics related to LGBTQ students, case students, legal documentation, school and district policies as well use conversation among the members of the course to help each building leader with specific strategies for creating a safer environment for LGBTQ students in their schools.
