Equity Work

The Clear Creek Amana Community School District continues to review and work on improving equity within the district. Administrators, Directors and school board members are more than half way through a book study organized with facilitators, Katy Swalwell and Daniel Spikes. Research and identifying steps to begin equity work started in 2018. The book chosen, Is Everyone Really Equal? By Ozlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo is helping the group to recognize and manage biases and beliefs. Identifying, addressing, and eliminating the barriers that create (in)equities will help lead district efforts to cultivate our schools into an equitable institution. This is a long ongoing process that will not happen overnight but the foundational work has started and it will continue to build. In addition to the book study, administrators have participated in individual professional development, the Clipper Tip Line has been promoted more, and discipline tracking in the student information system has been improved to give more guidance into our current practices.


CCA is committed to a school system that supports all students by making sure they have what they need to be successful, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, identity, ability, socioeconomic, language, or place of origin.
