What is Equity?

The ECASD will use a lens of equity in all decision-making and at all levels, where equity means ensuring opportunities for learning and experiences for all students and especially for students who have been historically marginalized.

Glossary of Terms Related to Equity


ECASD and the Eau Claire School Board
have adopted an Equity Statement
to share our values and beliefs.

ECASD is better when we value equity, diversity, and inclusion.


Why an Equity Statement?

A report from the Civil Rights Project at UCLA found that Wisconsin tops the nation in suspension rates, disciplining 34% of Black high school students, while only a 4% suspension rate for white students. This is the largest Black-White discipline gap of all 50 states at the high school level. Wisconsin's suspension rate for Black elementary students is the second-highest at 12%.
