The Grand Ledge Public Schools (GLPS) is committed to fostering a learning and work environment that values and promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion. We aim to develop, implement, and maintain equitable, inclusive, and just policies, programs, curricula, and practices. The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee (EDIC) is being instituted to: listen to the varied perspectives and experiences of GLPS students, families and staff members, and ensure the academic needs of students and families are met.
