Sign Our Petition
Dear Waukee Community School District Board Members:
Please make a motion to remove the controversial Equity Standards developed by the Southern Poverty Law Center from our school's website and establish a diverse committee of parents, students and staff to draft a new set of standards that:
do NOT divide Waukee students into "identity groups" based on gender, the color of their skin, or any other personal or physical attributes;
do NOT give teachers the authority to introduce personal political or social viewpoints to impressionable young people in Waukee classrooms; and
do NOT put programs that support Waukee students' unique abilities, talents and desires - like ELP, ESL and special education programs - at risk of being shut down.
The WCSD Board voted to approve the revised Equity Standards on August 9, 2021, but you can still sign the petition as a way to show them we can "do better."
