As many of you are already aware, there was recently a video captured of a local Prescott High School student making hateful and threatening remarks toward the LGBTQ+ community. GYCC has been in communication with Prescott Unified School District, Launchpad Teen Center and others involved with our community to assure action is being taken to keep our community safe.
GYCC Board Members met with PHS Faculty and PUSD representatives this morning over Google Meet. Everyone in attendance was on the same page that more action needs to be taken to support the LGBTQ+ youth in our area, and staff of the school and school district are listening to our community.
Know that there are long-term plans to implement inclusive education and support for our LGBTQ+ students.
