     “Equity is the removal of existing barriers and actively establishing the framework so that the needs of all students are met through fairness, justice, and meaningful opportunities.”

  • DEI Team Belief Statement

    The Grand Blanc Equity Team is committed to improving the lives of all students. More specifically,  we believe that to fully embrace and operationalize equity in Grand Blanc Community Schools, all students must have their voices heard in a safe, supportive environment that values difference.

    Grand Blanc Community Schools will create and sustain equity through

    • inclusivity, accessibility, and belonging 
    • dignified policies and procedures
    • opportunities for students to actualize their own unique genius 
    • exemplary models of character and judgment
  • Teacher Resources

    ***Thank you for your efforts to support diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the Grand Blanc community. As always, the provided resources are not part of a Grand-Blanc approved curriculum; rather, they are tools to inform and encourage curiosity.
