From the desk of Lesleigh Dye, Superintendent of Schools with the Rainbow District School Board,
"To continue the ongoing work of Gay Straight Alliances in our secondary schools, each GSA will be provided with $400.00. The funds are to be used to support the promotion and celebration of the work of the GSA in your school."
The Spartan Gay Straight Alliance will be using the funds to purchase two custom banners, gel bracelets, business cards and to pay for the group's new website at spartangsa.com. These promotional items will help the Spartan GSA stay connected with its members, allies and the closetted youth who may need their support.
"It's incredible to see a school board that is so progressive, so supportive and so open to the diversity of students in our schools," said Spartan GSA teacher-advisor Jayson Stewart.
