School Rainbow Representatives

Every school in the Howard County Public School System has at least one staff member who serves as a Rainbow Representative.

The goals and outcomes for this group are as follows:

  • To create a more welcoming community for LGBTQIA+ students
  • To provide instructional support for educators
  • To communicate information shared by Student Support Programs to each school’s administration, staff and community
  • To ensure each school within HCPSS is an ally and advocate for LGBTQIA+ students, staff and families

Please see below for a complete list of Rainbow Reps, and select their name to email them.
