Equity at Clarke Community Schools

What is Equity?

Equity is defined by dictionary.com as "the quality of being fair or impartial; fairness; impartiality". When we talk about "equity" in education, we are doing so in reference to our educational programs and hiring practices. This site is dedicated to Clarke Community School District's Equity and Non-Discrimination policies, practices, and procedures.

If you have any questions about the information on this site, please contact the district's Equity Coordinator, Jean Bahls, at jbahls@clarke.k12.ia.us or 641-342-4969, ext. 7.

The picture to the right shows the difference between equality (giving everyone the same thing) and equity (giving everyone the tools they need to be successful).
