SOGI 1 2 3 Website & Resource Guide
For over 5 years in Alberta and British Columbia, SOGI 1 2 3 has helped build the capacity of educators to make schools inclusive and safe for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI) by providing resources and tools, by and for educators, to integrate into the classroom and school environment.
SOGI 1 2 3 programs are active in 67 school divisions across Alberta and British Columbia. The six divisions in Alberta include the Edmonton Public School Board, Sturgeon School Division, St. Alberta Public Schools, Aspen View School Division, Fort McMurray Public Schools, and Elk Island Public Schools.
The SOGI 1 2 3 website covers three main components: SOGI 1 = polices and procedures; SOGI 2 = inclusive environments; and SOGI 3 = teaching resources. Additionally, the All Educators Page provides easy-to-access to relevant topics and solutions provided by other educators.
