In Regina Public Schools, it is important that we demonstrate our Shared Values that include belonging and respect. As a school division, we are committed to ensuring schools and workplaces are safe and inclusive environments where lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, trans-identified, transsexual, two-spirited, intersex and queer staff, students, families and allies feel included, protected and respected.
Alliances for gender and sexual diversity, sometimes called Gay-Straight Alliances or Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSAs), are school clubs/groups for students who wish to support school environments that are safe for, inclusive of, and responsive to gender and sexually diverse people. These alliances are open to all students and members work together to create safe and supportive environments for everyone. These alliances also provide a place for all students to meet, make friends and talk about issues specific to gender and sexual diversity. There is no expectation to reveal one's sexual orientation or gender identity.
Regina Public Schools strives to give the opportunity to all in the school community to recognize Pride and Pride-related events. In the 2020-21 school year, Regina Public Schools, with support of community partners, entered in an examination and reflection on its procedures and practices as they relate to diversity. Details and results of that work will be shared when available.
