To all families: As part of our recent Site Visit with the Iowa Department of Education we want to make you aware of the updates to Policy 600.1 Multicultural/Gender Fair Equity Educational Opportunity. The Board approved revisions of this policy on October 28, 2013. It is provided in total below. This will be updated in Student and Parent Handbooks for the 2014-2015 school year.
Students enrolled in the Clear Lake Community School District shall have an equal opportunity for a quality public education without discrimination regardless of their race, religion, socioeconomic status, color, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, creed, or disability.
The education program shall be free of such discrimination and provide equal opportunity for the participants as well as provide an awareness of the rights, duties and responsibilities of each individual as a member of a multicultural and nonsexist society.
The education program shall foster knowledge of, respect and appreciation for, the historical and contemporary contributions of diverse cultural groups as well as men and women in society. Special emphasis is placed on Asian-Americans, African-Americans, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, European-Americans, and persons with disabilities. It will also reflect the wide variety of roles open to both men and women and provide equal opportunity to both sexes.
