Keyes, Melissa; LePage, Dorothy
Wisconsin supports the implementation of equity as a critical component of achievement-oriented, reality-based education. This publication was designed to assist districts in conducting ongoing self-evaluations. It outlines requirements (with the legal citations for each), notes benchmarks, and includes suggestions for evaluation methods. Following the preface, a brief historical overview of antidiscrimination legislation in Wisconsin is presented. Other sections include a table of related civil rights laws, a copy of the Wisconsin statute and administrative rule, definitions of terms, a table for measuring compliance with policy and procedural requirements, answers to commonly asked questions, and a list of Department of Public Instruction resources. Appendices contain the following: examples of required policies and procedures, a description of school-district complaint process, elements of the Wisconsin statute and rule, an annual reporting form, and a 5-year self-evaluation summary form.
