The District seeks to ensure programs and practices are welcoming to all students regardless of their sexual orientation. The term “sexual orientation” refers to a person’s emotional, romantic  and/or sexual attraction to people of the other and/or same gender. Common terms used to describe sexual orientation include, but are not limited to, heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual  and queer. Sexual orientation and gender identity are different. For example, transgender students may identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual.
