LGBTQ Support Services

LGBTQ Support Services
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning

Overview

Students who have same sex attractions, who are uncomfortable with their assigned gender, or who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, face enormous social pressures and challenges that affect their school success, health and well-being.  As a result, LGBTQ youth are more vulnerable to such issues as school dropout, bullying, academic failure and parental rejection.

SCUSD’s LGBTQ Support Services program offers students, families, school staff and community professionals a centralized source of information and support regarding issues facing LGBTQ students that attend SCUSD schools. 

Services include information/referral, short-term counseling and advocacy.  All services are confidential and are provided free of charge.
