Diversity & Inclusion

Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) Magnet Schools is an intentionally diverse social justice organization whose members work to acknowledge, respect, and empathize with people of all different identifiers, such as race, socioeconomic status, gender identity and expression, education, age, ability, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, language, nationality, and religion.

In accordance with CREC’s mission of equity, excellence, and success for all through high-quality educational services, our staff and students commit to participate in and support ongoing equity and inclusion programming through curricular and co-curricular offerings, professional learning, and local and national partnerships. Moreover, CREC Magnet Schools staff and students strive to understand and confront the symptoms and causes of systematic oppression—ranging from implicit biases to microaggressions to discriminatory policies, practices and traditions—that benefit privileged groups.

While at CREC Magnet Schools, staff and students commit to affirm and honor the lived experiences of others, to willingly challenge inherited beliefs and ideologies, and consequently learn, grow, and serve.

CREC would like to acknowledge The Taft School for inspiring some of the language used in this statement.
