2021-2026 Strategic Plan | Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The COVID-19 pandemic deepened the divides that already exist within the educational system—access, opportunities, achievement, and outcomes. Students who experience disparities in these areas have a decreased opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute, and students in historically marginalized and underserved groups are affected to an even greater degree. At Communities In Schools of Central Texas, we see potential in every student, regardless of race, zip code, or history of marginalization. We acknowledge that structural barriers can be just as hard to overcome as personal challenges and circumstances. We will accelerate and expand our work to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in our policies and practices on behalf of our students and families, and the Central Texas community

The 2021-2026 Strategic Plan is grounded in a passion for social justice and designed to empower all students to take charge of the future they want—for themselves, for their communities, and for each other.
