Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Our goal is to provide a safe and secure learning environment where all people can expect to be treated with respect.
The Granada Hills Charter (GHC) student population is one of the most diverse, with more than 40 languages other than English spoken at home and over 60 nationalities represented. Our goal is to provide a safe and secure learning environment where all people - regardless of disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation - can expect to be treated with respect.
Belonging is the expected outcome of an intentional, proactive focus on inclusion. We strive for equity in pay, advancement, and promotion. We create a workplace where we support all employees in achieving success. GHC creates student-centered environments to develop academic curiosity, practical skills, and positive attitudes that enable successful, lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. If we are to expect Effective Learning Results (ESLRs) in our students, the same outcomes must be visible and present in our staff and faculty.
Be yourself. To make a long story short, GHC is enriched by the diversity of our students, faculty and staff. Our school is committed to providing a working and learning environment free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying. Read our nondiscrimination policy.
Fair and equitable. Training for GHC staff and faculty continues through the Spring semester. In the Fall, staff and faculty completed the course "Let's Talk About Race" and then engaged in a deep dive session. This Spring, the School will complete the "Flipped Classroom - What Is Implicit Bias and How Can We Address It?" training, complete by another deep dive session with the School's training facilitators.
Responsible global citizens. Our accelerated approach to diversity and inclusion, GHC's mission is to create student-centered environments to develop academic curiosity, practical skills, and positive attitudes that enable successful, lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. Such an endeavor begins in the workplace, amongst our staff and faculty, leading by example. Modeling positive attitudes, lifelong learning, and responsible citizenship for our students is the School's expectation of everyone on our two campuses. To do that well, we need a workforce that’s more representative of the students we serve throughout Los Angeles. That’s why we’ve embraced a refreshed and accelerated approach to diversity and inclusion in education.
