LGBTQ+ Information, Resources, and Support

  • LVJUSD is a SAFE SPACE FOR ALL!

    LGBTQ+ youth can best reach their full potential when they are accepted, respected, supported, and valued as members of the school community. To achieve this goal, education and advocacy must be focused on both promoting positive social-emotional and academic development for all youth and, simultaneously, on eliminating discrimination, harassment, and sexuality and gender-based biases.

    All youth have equal opportunities to participate in and benefit from educational and mental health services within schools, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

    We support efforts to ensure that our schools are safe and inclusive learning environments for all students, family members, and school staff and respect a person's right to express their gender identity.
