The school board has received a verbal thank you from Haida Gwaii Teachers’ Association president Evelyn von Almassy for its updated sexual orientation policy. At the May 28 school board meeting, Ms von Almassy praised the district for being “very progressive” and one of the first in BC to adopt a sexual orientation policy. The updated policy, adopted last month, includes suggestions about actions that schools and teachers can take to promote an understanding of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues.
