New LGBTQ+ Webpage Includes Resources for Students, Parents and Staff
MCPS has launched a resources webpage with helpful information for LGBTQ+ students, parents and staff.
The webpage includes emergency hotline numbers; resource sections for students, staff and parents, as well as a calendar of upcoming awareness holidays and visibility days.
Staff resources include information on supporting LGBTQ+ students at home and in the classroom, informational handouts for sharing and a glossary of terms supported by MoCo Pride Center. The student resource section includes links to MCPS policies, support meeting information, the curriculum and resources in relation to athletics. Parental resources include educational resources and bullying report forms.
A quick access button has been added to all secondary school websites.
The content for the website was developed by The Pride Alliance, an internal and external stakeholder group.
