Pride Clubs are student-led and student-organized school clubs that aim to create a safe, welcoming, and accepting school environment for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The clubs provide a supportive environment for LGBTQ+ students, have LGBTQ+ friends or family members, or include those that just care about LGBTQ+ issues. As with other student clubs, they are voluntary and open to all students.
Per the above policy:
The board believes in fostering an educational environment that is safe and free of discrimination for all students, regardless of gender expression, gender identity, or sex. To that end, the board recognizes the importance of an inclusive approach toward transgender and gender-expansive students with regard to key terms, communication and the use of names and pronouns, student records, confidential health and education information, communication, restroom and locker room use and accessibility, sports and physical education, dress codes, and other school activities, in order to provide these students with an equal opportunity for learning and achievement.

Enumclaw School District administrative staff participated in the WASA book study of "Caste" to meet the training requirement for SB 5044. Please see the description of the book study from WASA below:
Using the book “Caste” as a launching pad for learning about the WHY of leading for racial equity, leaders will push their own thinking, vocabulary, and moral imperative on this work, while leaving with modules they can take and use with their district/school teams, moving the organizational culture towards equity and excellence.

Social Emotional Learning
Our PK-5 schools address social emotional learning in several ways. Our counselors teach lessons using three primary resources: Kelso’s Choice, Second Step, and Conscious Discipline. Classroom teachers do not teach SEL as a separate subject or class, it is integrated throughout the day and often taught in the moment when incidents or opportunities arise. Our primary resource for addressing SEL needs is Conscious Discipline. Conscious Discipline is a trauma informed, brain researched program focused on safety, connection and problem solving.
