Non-Discrimination Statement

A charter school shall not discriminate against any student or limit the admission of any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion or ancestry or any other ground that would be unlawful if done by a school. A school may not require any action by a student or family (such as an admissions test, interview, essay, attendance at an information session, etc.) in order for an applicant to either receive or submit an application for admission to that school.

However, Heketi Community Charter School provides an academic program specifically designed for English Language Learners.

If an applicant chooses not to provide this optional information, the applicant cannot be disqualified for admission to the school (although the applicant will not receive the admissions preference).
