Mission Statement:

To work within our school community to promote the notion that all people have a right to be treated with equanimity and dignity.
To reduce anti-gay violence, harassment, and discrimination by educating the school community about issues important to the HBQT community, and by creating a safe, friendly, and social school environment for homosexual, bisexual, questioning, and transgender students as well as friends/family, members of HBQT and any other supporters.

Policy 3211 Tumwater School District Board Policy:

TRANSGENDER STUDENTS

The Board believes in fostering an educational environment that is safe and free of discrimination for all students, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. To that end, the Board recognizes the importance of an inclusive approach toward transgender students with regard to official records, confidential health and education information, communication, restroom and locker room accessibility, sports and physical education, dress codes and other school activities, in order to provide these students with an equal opportunity for learning and achievement. This policy and its procedure will support that effort by facilitating district compliance with local, state and federal laws concerning harassment, intimidation, bullying and discrimination.
