Equity Statement

Equal Educational Opportunity (BP 500)
The school district does not discriminate in its education programs or educational activities on the basis of age, color, creed, national origin, race, religion, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical attributes, physical or mental ability or disability, ancestry, political party preference, political belief, socioeconomic status or familial status in the education program or activities, which it operates. Students are educated in programs, which foster knowledge of, and respect and appreciation for, the historical and contemporary contributions of diverse cultural groups, as well as men and women, to society.

Students who feel they have been discriminated against are encouraged to report it to the school district Affirmative Action Coordinator. The Affirmative Action Coordinator is Chad Wahls (BP 1000), and can be reached at  563-864-7651. Inquires may also be directed in writing to the Director of the Region VII Office of Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education, 8930 Ward Parkway, Suite 2037, Kansas City, MO 64114, (816-268-0550), or the Iowa Department of Education, Grimes State Office Building, Des Moines, IA, 50319-0146, (515-281-5294).
