EQUITY UPDATES

Petition For Equity

On April 21st 2019 ROAR released a petition called ISD112: It's Time to Act. The petition asks for specific changes in regards to equity and racism in our schools. It has gained over 800 signatures. The petition can be viewed and signed HERE

District Petition Response

ROAR is encouraged by the district's response to our petition which was released May 29th, 2019. Some highlighted wins are: 

1) Trauma care in ALL schools not just CHS
2) New Equity Advisory Committee 
3) Equity updates at all school board meetings and posted online 
4) District wide transparent communication regarding racial incidences 
5) Equity audit results made public
6) Mandated professional equity training 
7) Commitment to recruiting staff of color
8) Town-hall planned for June for community engagement

In regard to the zero tolerance response, ROAR is in full agreement that zero tolerance is not the right solution as those types of policies disproportionately affect minority students, something we are clearly trying to improve not make worse. Clear policy and procedures are needed, we are with the district on this one!
