The purpose of the Annual Equity Compliance Report is to assure that each local school district is in compliance with Standard I, 1993 Revised Standards for Accreditation of Arkansas Public Schools, which states:

All school districts' policies and actions shall be nondiscriminatory and shall be in compliance with state and federal laws.

State Code Annotated 6-10-111 (1987) Section 3, requires each district to annually report to the Arkansas Department of Education, Equity Assistance Center, regarding its compliance with civil rights responsibilities.

Federal laws (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) have specific requirements of public schools as recipients of federal funds.

The attached 1998 Annual Equity Compliance Report should be completed and returned to the Equity Assistance Center by October 15, 1998.
