The purpose of the LGBTQIA Advisory Committee, formerly the Safe Schools Advisory Group, is to support a nondiscrimination policy to ensure a healthier learning environment for all students, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students.

The San Diego Unified School District is committed to equal opportunity for all students in admission and access to the district's educational programs, guidance and counseling programs, athletic programs, testing procedures, and other activities and that all programs and activities be free from discrimination, including harassment, with respect to a student's actual or perceived sex, gender, ethnic group identification, race, national origin, religion, color, physical or mental disability, age, or sexual orientation.
