"Commitment to Equity
Ames CSD is committed to a school system that supports educational excellence regardless of ethnicity, race, color, national origin, age, different abilities, religion, marital or parental status, political affiliations or beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Equitable academic programs and services that respond to the needs of a diverse student population and prepare all students for an ever changing global community are important. Ames CSD believes the work of educational equity can be accomplished through the lens of critical consciousness. Critical consciousness is the ability to recognize and analyze systems of inequality and the commitment to take action against these systems and should be embedded in every aspect of our school system."
