Iowa City Community School District LGBTQ Student Experiences Multi-Stakeholder Task Force Report 2018

Bruch, S.K.; Heeren, T.; Adams, A.J.D.; Veldhouse, N.


This report details the results of a multi-stakeholder Task Force convened to gather feedback and prioritize recommendations directed at supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) students and creating safe and LGBTQ-inclusive schools. The convening of the Task Force was motivated by the finding of systematic and patterned disparities between LGB and non-LGB, and between non-binary gender identified and male and female identified students in the 2017 Assessing Student Experiences of School Report. The ICCSD Board of Education supported the assembly of a Task Force to assess and prioritize potential strategies to promote greater equity in student experiences and ensure all students are able to thrive in ICCSD schools.
