Whittier Elementary


Supporting LGBTQ Students

Diverse Heart

Seattle Public Schools has created policies and best practices designed to support LGBTQ* students and families. These best practices include, but are not limited to a student’s right to be addressed by preferred pronouns and an inclusive restroom policy. Below you will find the official document from Seattle Public Schools on creating safe spaces for youth,  a booklist toolkit, and the SPS LGBTQ Programs page. We hope that sharing this information widely will give families the tools they may need to support students.

* LGBTQ is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning
