Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Gateway Community Charters respects, affirms, and protects the dignity and human worth of each member of its community. We value differences and seek to actively pursue diversity, advance inclusion and ensure equity. The GCC Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strives to be a driving force for promoting shared values within our organization and our schools in order to promote a welcoming environment and inclusion excellence for people of all identities, diverse perspectives and life experiences. From this perspective, we envision schools where every student meets their highest potential and where differences are celebrated and maximized to achieve excellence.


Gateway Community Charters will actively include and value all stakeholders while working to meet students’ unique learning needs while actively developing their understanding and respect of difference, therefore preparing students to thrive in an inclusive, global society.
