Celebrate LGBT History month! (October)


Help make schools safer for LGBTQ youth and their allies by honoring Queer History Month!

  • LGBT History Month, aka Queer History Month, was founded by Rodney Wilson in 1994.
  • As a High school teacher, he hoped to address and educate on LGBT issues and contributions, information that history text books failed to provide.
  • October was chosen as history month, in part because of the already established and widely celebrated “National Coming Out Day” that happens in October 11.
  • LGBT History Month is intended to encourage awareness, conversation and openness about being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, especially among educators and in school settings.
  • Consider celebrating Queer History Month at your school, community organization and/or business!

2015-2016 CA Healthy Kids Survey Results!

The purpose of this survey and report is to provide data that would assist schools in:

(1) fostering positive school climates and engagement in learning;

(2) preventing youth health-risk behaviors and other barriers to academic achievement; and

(3) promoting positive youth development, resilience, and well-being.

A thorough understanding of the scope and nature of youth behaviors, attitudes, and learning conditions is essential to guide school improvement efforts and to also develop effective prevention, health, and youth development programs.
