2011-12 Equity Report
In 2004, school districts were asked to evaluate the success of the methods and strategies aimed at reducing gaps in student performance or increase participation of underrepresented groups by race/ethnicity and gender. Added to the accountability, school districts have been asked to report on gender equity in athletics, implementation of substitution requirements in vocational technical centers and employment equity.
