Safe and Caring Environments for all LGBTQ Youth

October 14th, 2018


Education is a shared responsibility. The Centro Linguistico e Culturale Calgary (CLCIC) along with students, families, employees and our extended communities works to build positive learning environments for student success. The CLCIC Board recognizes its obligation and responsibility to create the conditions for each young person -including gender and sexual minority youth- to make success possible.

Creating Safe and Caring Environments for all LGBTQ Youth

The safety, well-being, and experiences of LGBTQ youth (e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) are important. At the CLCIC, we are committed to creating safe and caring communities for everyone, including our LGBTQ youth.

Alberta Education provides best practice strategies about safe and caring environments “Guidelines for Best Practices: Creating Learning Environments that Respect Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Gender Expressions.” CLCIC guidelines, align with provincial best practices.

Recent changes to the School Act clarify information with respect to GSAs/QSAs. This includes more explicit information about parent notification, the initiation of GSAs/QSAs and the responsibility placed on school principals. If students are interested in starting a GSA/QSA at our school more information can be found at the AB Education website.

Note | The LGBTQ acronym is not all-encompassing but is used here to represent the full range of gender and sexual minorities. We recognize that language is ever evolving.

Questions for clarification and requests for support should be directed to our school principal.
