“I cannot assume a student’s gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”
“I advocate for LGBTQ inclusive and affirming materials in all school and classroom environments.”
“The technology policies allow student access to age-appropriate LGBTQ content and information (e.g., LGBTQ-specific media, public health and education organizations, and entertainment sites).”
“Our district allows teachers to develop LGBTQ inclusive curricula or adapt curricula and materials to be more LGBTQ inclusive.”
“My classroom or learning space includes visual labels (e.g., rainbow flags, pink triangles, unisex bathroom signs) marking it as a safe space for LGBTQ students.”
“During sexual health education lessons, I present information on all types of sex, not centering on penis/vagina penetrative sex.”
“During sexual health education lessons, I describe anatomy and physiology separate from gender (e.g., “a body with a penis,” “a body with a vagina”).”
