Title IX

DPS does not condone or tolerate discrimination or harassment based on protected class, and strives to create learning and working environments that are truly affirming and inclusive. Our prohibition on discrimination and harassment extends to admission and employment. Through enforcement of the policy and regulations , the District seeks to prevent and correct any discriminatory behavior, breaking historical patterns of inequity, not by accident, but by design.

Merrill offers a safe space for LGBTQIA+ students! Merrill’s GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) is hosted Mr. Patterson.  It’s a place for LGBTQIA+ and straight students alike to sit down and discuss the issues that face LGBTQIA+ students both at school, and out in the real world.  This club can be used as a place to talk about all of our experiences, the bad, and the good.

To attend all you have to do is go to meet.google.com  and type in the Google meet code: “TheMerrillSpace”.  

For more information about GSA at Merrill, please reach out to Mr. Patterson (timothy_patterson@dpsk12.net
