Emails reveal plans to integrate LGBTQ curriculum into elementary school during SEL lessons; $25K grant secured to secure “Rainbow Liaison at EVERY school” in Howard County Public Schools


A 3rd grade elementary school instructional team leader and “RAINBOW representative” in the Howard County Public School System sent an email to colleagues full of excitement about plans to “incorporate LGBTQ within our elementary curriculum.” She explicitly states that this would be integrated during SEL time. (SEL=social emotional learning)

We don’t know what article was attached to the email.

Below is another email from the principal with news of a “$25K grant to be used for advocacy work for the LGBTQ+ community for this upcoming school year” and hopes of securing a “Rainbow Liaison at EVERY school within HCPSS.” She makes sure to clarify that this would be “a person separate from the DEIL,” which we assume means “diversity, equity and inclusion liaison.”
