• Anti-Racism
  • Action Plan

We at GDS have been engaging across the community to further define and deepen our commitments to being an anti-racist institution and staying true to our founding mission.

We have identified a path forward for the institution, and we want to transparently share how we have performed in meeting our commitments for the 2020-21 school year and beyond. Below you will find details of our work in the areas of community engagement, programming, professional development, and policy. Read ongoing stories from our anti-racist journey in the news slider at the bottom of this page.
