Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDE&A)

  • "To provide students with tools to navigate our increasingly integrated world, we present them with experiences and immerse them in situations that expand their awareness, appreciation, and understanding of identity. We provide students with opportunities to embrace all individuals’ identity domains."


    Formation of one’s identity is multifaceted and often a lifelong process. Individual identity domains may include but are not limited to: culture, communication, religion, socioeconomic factors, race, ethnicity, nationality, languages spoken, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical attributes, learning styles, and family composition. To ensure that Lake Norman Charter is a place where all feel a sense of acceptance and belonging, we engage in continuous efforts through:

    • Facilitating staff training and support that create alignment and increase understanding of the LNC values outlined in the IDE&A statements above.

    • Developing and delivering consistent, educationally appropriate student learning opportunities that cultivate an awareness and understanding of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion.

    • Researching, prioritizing, and adopting best practices that foster and support a diverse school-wide community.

    • Engaging families through outreach, communication, and opportunities for involvement.
