     In order to discuss the student climate and student voice of LGBTQIA+ students at Morse high school, a meeting was held by their Advisory Committee at room 601 on Sept. 13 from 4pm-5pm.

     The event was designed to keep the SDUSD’s staff, parents, and community members informed on the actions taking place in order to support LGBTQIA+ students in the district with meetings being held every other month.

     “This is the first year the committee is taking the meetings ‘on the road’ and we are happy to have Morse High School host the first meeting of the year,” said Program Manager Sophia Arredondo.

     The topic most emphasized was how staff can better address the needs of transgender students including preferred names and pronouns.

     “We are honored that the principal of Morse, Dr. Larkin was present and listening attentively to what the students had to say,” said Arredondo.

     The event was the first of the year and they plan to host more events throughout the year at other schools with the next one taking place at Pershing Middle School on Nov. 14 from 4pm-5:30pm.

     “We hope to have an equal number of students from Pershing and Lewis Middle School, as well as Patrick Henry High school,” said Arredondo.

     “Anytime we as a program can facilitate an opportunity for students to be heard by folks who can help improve their experiences at school, we are happy,” said Arredondo.
