The 7th edition of A Silent Crisis: Creating Safe and Supportive Schools for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) Students has just been published! It includes a wealth of new
resources to help schools comply with Title IX and meet the objectives of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). The guide supports educators with creating a positive, respectful and inclusive learning environment in their classrooms, hallways, schools, and communities to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students. With more and more students coming out to schools as transgender and non-binary, the guide has many of the latest model policies and practice guidelines to support full inclusion of these often-marginalized students. Resources address vocabulary, bullying and harassment policies, family engagement, names and pronouns, student records, privacy, restrooms, locker rooms, and sports.
The 7th edition includes more than 70 new or updated resources. Many of the resources are available online using the link above. If staff attend an upcoming A Silent Crisis workshops (see schedule above) they will receive a copy of the new 7th edition guide. Please contact Julie at [email protected] or 517-699-7000 X1208 to order copies. Since the new guide is larger than the previous one, the cost has gone up a bit as well. The new guide is $60 plus S&H.
