• Leon County Schools LGBTQ+ Safe Zones

    The Leon County Schools Safe Zone program provides resources within each school to support our LGBTQ+ students. LGBTQ+ Safe Zone Allies are identified by Safe Zone logo on their office or classroom. The logo means that teacher or faculty member's room is a safe place for all students. It means the teacher or faculty member is a personal contact in whom the students can confide regarding issues related to gender identity or sexual orientation.
