Equity-Centered Sexual Identity & Gender Inclusive Policy: Staff/Community Survey

The Monroe County Community School Corporation (MCCSC) is currently developing an equity-centered sexual identity and gender inclusive policy. MCCSC officials are engaging community partners in a variety of ways in order to gain input and perspectives. Our student group has been heavily involved and has been represented by our Student Equity Ambassadors as well as students from our LGBTQIA+ community. We request your participation in this survey so that we may continue to collect community partner feedback. 

Complete the Equity-Centered Sexual Identity & Gender Inclusive Policy survey here, by Friday, May 17th.
