Resources for Schools
The ‘School Policy Guide for K-12 Educators’ was designed to provide school administrators with resources to support LGBTQ+ students in their schools. Each chapter within this binder contains journal articles, research summaries, education policies, and action items such as checklists that can be utilized by superintendents, principals, and teachers. A list of resources can be found in the final chapters.
Researchers estimate that 14.9% of high school students identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or unsure of their sexual identity, and 1.8% identify as transgender. This interactive map presents estimates of LGBTQ+ students in all Michigan middle and high schools.
This resource guide was developed for local educators and updated in May 2019.
The 2018 SOGI YAC Survey: School Report highlights the experiences of local LGBTQ+ students. Survey data was collected in the summer of 2018 online and at regional community events.
