Education Equity Requirements
Both federal and state laws require that there be no discrimination in educational programs or in school hiring practices on the basis of race, national origin, color, religion, creed, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio economic status, or marital status. Districts are required to implement multicultural, gender-fair approaches to the entire educational program.
This web site is being developed to provide information to assist school districts in the process of compliance with the spirit and the letter of Federal and State mandates related to equity in the educational program.
Links are provided to the Iowa Department of Education Equity page, Federal and community resources that can inform and guide you through the process of developing the systems that support education equity in your school districts.
