Student Services & Equity Education
The Educational Equity Committee (EEC) is committed to ensuring equal opportunity for students and staff to access educational programs and employment, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, religion, national origin or disability. The EEC will support and advise the district on the coordination and development of policies, programs, resources, and methods, which would increase maximum achievement for all students in a multi-cultural, gender fair environment.
Bright Futures helps students achieve success by matching student needs with resources through partnerships between the schools and the community utilizing social media. Through the Bright Futures’ framework, the Sioux City Community School District acts as a liaison between needy students and community organizations. The initiative is a part of the national Bright Futures USA. Founded in 2010 in Joplin, MO; Bright Futures USA has chapters throughout the country. Sioux City’s chapter is the first in Iowa.
In addition to meeting any child’s basic needs within 24 hours, our program also is building community leadership capacity to improve problem solving capabilities to address the greater challenges faced by today’s youth.
