California’s Albany Unified School District partnered with a group of GLBT parents and their allies to win a grant from Alameda County. The grant is seen as a meaningful boost in the group’s mission of preventing bullying and promoting a safe learning environment. The money will be used to enhance the group’s ongoing social, educational and advocacy activities, which include workshops and guest speakers. The money will also be used to provide resources to teachers to help them address homophobic bullying. The group also wants to create a bullying prevention model that other schools may use. The grant is from the Innovation Grants Program of Behavioral Health Care Services, which provides mental health services for Alameda County.
