To the Clear Creek Amana Community School District, equity means that each student and educator has access to the resources and opportunities they need to fulfill their potential, and the characteristics of their identity should not stand in the way of that access.
We help lead the District's efforts to cultivate our schools into an equitable institution by building an environment of Inclusive Excellence to ensure that everyone feels appreciated, validated, accepted, and treated fairly. Our students and staff have the right to learn and work in a setting where all backgrounds and experiences are welcomed, included, and encouraged.
The district will abide by the state of Iowa laws.

The district has seven trained Certified School Culture Advocates identified for each attendance center. In addition to their teaching position, they are an additional resource in helping create welcoming spaces for underrepresented populations, engage students in civic dialogue, and ensure all students and staff feel safe and supported in school. In addition, the seven selected individuals work with the Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Culture to discuss and create engaging and purposeful professional development, develop partnerships with community stakeholders, and help continue transforming the culture at CCA.

Your Voice Matters
We are committed to providing a safe environment in which students can learn and thrive. We are using Tip Line as a way of ensuring that all concerns are addressed. Students, families, staff, and community members are encouraged to use Tip Line to report any safety concern to school and/or district administration. Tip Line can also be used to share positive comments.
Tips can be left anonymously or with contact information. Leaving contact information would allow for follow-up or further inquiry about the tip. Please know that any contact information will be treated with confidentiality. Personal information will only be shared with staff that is tasked with addressing the tip.
If you wish to submit your tip anonymously, we will follow up on it, but will not be able to communicate with you. Please also feel free to contact your school principal with any concern. You may also contact Angelica Brothers, Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Culture.
