The SCCOE is thrilled to partner with OUT for Safe Schools™, and further support LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning) youth, families, caregivers, and communities in Santa Clara County so everyone is welcomed and affirmed on all school campuses
Starting in Spring, 2020, SCCOE districts, their educators, administrators, and other school staff/ district employees will be invited to “come out" as visible allies for LGBTQ youth. As part of the OUT for Safe Schools™ program, participating district staff will wear badges identifying themselves as allies in order to make school a safer, more welcoming place.
