Per MCPS: As a reflection of our ongoing commitment to ensure our curriculum is inclusive and affirming of all students, MCPS has approved a selection of LGBTQ+-inclusive texts for use in the classroom. Reading stories that reflect the diversity of our school community and world encourages respect and empathy for all.
As with all curriculum resources, there is an expectation that teachers utilize the texts as a part of instruction. It is important to note that using the materials is optional as it is standard practice that teachers have a choice regarding which materials to use. A link of approved texts is included in the Curriculum section of the MCPS LGBTQ+ webpage that includes a list of approved texts.
